A golf course is a company, and as such, it brings together professions in personnel management, administrative, financial and commercial management, teaching and sports activities and grounds maintenance. Thus, the operation of a golf course is very specific and, as we will see during this study, this profession requires a knowledge of the world of golf and advanced management skills in order to achieve a practical balance between the various constraints.
In France, golf courses cover 33,000 hectares, are managed by approximately 8,000 employees and welcome members, green-fee players and tourists. The owner of a golf course, depending on his objectives (standing, public service, etc.), manages the operation himself or delegates it to a third party. The management mode of a golf course can be associative, commercial or public
The golf operation market corresponds to all the facilities and infrastructure used in this sport. There are golf courses for amateurs, who practice sport as a leisure activity, but also for those who practice competition, and for professionals. Some courses are located within the resort area and are more particularly oriented towards golf tourism. Thus, the golf market goes hand in hand with the tourism sector since many hotel complexes, called "resorts" in the golf world, offer stays based on the practice of sport with a green on the hotel grounds, available to guests. Discipline is a significant growth factor for the tourism sector
