Answer by matthew
Very few golf courses would have a arborist. Some really high end course might have a horticulturist who’s job it would be to take care of all the trees and other plants on the course. I would say their salary would range from 30-80k a year. But even a horticulturist is a very uncommon position for most golf courses. A vast majority of golf courses have a Golf Course Superintendent. His or her job is to maintain the entire grounds of the golf course. These professionals have a vast array of education and experience making them capable to maintain all different types of plant. While I will admit on most golf courses if the grass is really nice then the members are willing to look past a few trees or shrubs that don’t look great.
If you are interested in working on the maintenance side of a golf course there are a lot of jobs that are available. Just google golf course superintendent, I am sure you will find out more than you want to know.

    The golf course arborist is non- existent in today’s course personnel. There are very few courses which can afford such a specialist. We had a person who started a great program of course plantings. When she requested a raise beyond what we could afford, the duties were taken over by the course greens superintendent and one of the staff was assigned to course beautification. Our plantings are second to none within our state.
