This sounds like a perfect gig for me

Times Online is a UK publication in which I found a wild job which I may just be the guy for.  A UK company called Your Golf Travel which I’ve mentioned before, is offering a job for someone with less than a 14 handicap who wants to travel the world for a year writing about golf courses and travel.  Pick me pick me…

This sounds like a non-job just like that one running a desert island off the Queensland coast that turned out to be a big come-on for the state’s tourist industry. But I am assured it is for real. YourGolfTravel, set up four years ago by a couple of City types to arrange golf holidays, wants a redundant worker, possibly also with a City background, to go around the world for a year visiting golf courses, researching opportunities and writing reviews.

The successful candidate will be chosen by means of a golf tournament and entrants must have a handicap of less than 14. “It’s a genuine offer, with a competitive salary,” Ross Marshall, one of the founders, tells me. “A lot of my friends have been made redundant and are struggling to find jobs. We’re only offering the job to people made redundant in the last 12 months. A corporate background would be useful, but we’re not restricting it.”
