Do you really want to serve your country, but worry it’ll cut down on your time on the links?

At last, the perfect opportunity has presented itself. The U.S. Army has posted an opening for a “golf pro” in Zama, Japan. The Army has a post in city, known as Camp Zama.

Not just anyone can apply; applicants must have completed or be in the process of completing a Class A PGA Certification. The employee will assist in the management of golf activity, and will help operate a “profit-generating business.”

A successful applicant would be a bit of a renaissance man. In addition to providing “golf instructions to individuals and groups,” the employee will review financial reports, plans, costs and budgets.

The position will pay between $25,000 to $30,000 annually.
