Committee for Golf Club Salaries (CGCS) Recommended Salaries for GreenstaffCGCS Salaries
The Committee for Golf Club Salaries (CGCS) is an independent committee, representing the interests of Golf Clubs throughout the UK, committed to supporting the healthy golf industry by acting as a positive reference for all club staff and club officials.
Originally formed in April 1997, the CGCS includes representatives from the Home Unions and membership associations alongside independent experts in the golf industry. The CGCS firmly believes that valued professional staff members are critical for golf clubs to succeed. It meets to review and recommend salaries for greenkeepers and golf club managers.
In 2020 the CGCS launched the online salary calculator system, established after substantial industry consultation, with separate tools for golf club manager, golf course manager, deputy golf course manager and assistant greenkeeper roles, available through the CGCS website.
