over rated....My current boss was actually offered the job to take care of the white house grounds and he turned it down....to work at georgetown... Just think every four years you might loose the contract...or worse yet, voted for the other guy....

If it was feasable St. Andrews or Augusta......but more feasable. Daytona or Indianapolis Speed way...

I'd have to say some place like Harvard University or the White house, and I would'nt worry about the for years because with a resume like that institutions and businesses will be knocking down your door for your services.

I always wanted to be the head groundskeeper at a stadium with Astroturf. That's gotta be an easy gig :D

hoolie,

believe it or not, taking care of astro turf is not as easy as you might think.

you still have to irrigate it, but in this case it's mostly to wash off teh blood, spit, sweat, ect(biohazzards)....the field has to be brushed to eleminate any rutting and crumb rubber needs to be added periodicly as well.

and if it a multi use field you still need to paint the numbers and hash marks.

now if the field only sees one or two games a week you ok. but in my case the guys practice on the field so it sees just as much maintenance as a turf field....

Ahh...there's goes my dream job, that stinks :D I didn't know you had to brush the turf on those fields. Still, it would be a cool job to work on the field of a major sports stadium.
