I read your post with great interest. I'll say this...you should do what makes you happpiest in life. Working a job that you dislike is not a good thing. Related to your turf choice, it's a great field of study, but jobs are very tough to get in golf or sports fields as a manager. Having worked in both fields, those areas are really niche markets compared to a wide open grounds and landscape business. You can get "type cast" pretty easily in both fields, too. Upward mobility in golf is almost non-existent at the moment and pay rates have actually dropped over the past two years as courses struggle to pay the bills. Good luck and keep learning.
