THOUSAND ACRES GOLF CLUBASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT JOB POSTINGThousand Acres Golf Club, 500 Lakeside Club Dr, Swanton, MD, 21561
THOUSAND ACRES GOLF CLUB is seeking a highly motivated individual to fill the role of Assistant Superintendent. TAGC was designed by Craig Schreiner and is in the Appalachian Mountains of western Maryland on Deep Creek Lake, in Swanton, MD. TAGC offers both memberships and is open for public play. This is a unique opportunity for the right person to help manage two uniquely different nines. The front 9 opened in 2008 and gets approximately 10,000 rounds annually with an eight-month golfing season. The greens are A1/A4 bentgrass and the tees and fairways are Declaration bentgrass. The roughs are a mix of tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass. In the next year we will be adding Fine Fescue areas on the front 9 to tie the two nines together.
The Assistant Superintendent will be involved in many tasks but not limited to:
Golf course setup, chemical and fertilizer applications, sprayer and spreader calibration, aeration, verticutting and topdressing, irrigation troubleshooting and repair, water management, staff training and snow removal. The Assistant Superintendent will lead the daily crew activities with support from the Superintendent.
This is an exciting opportunity for someone just starting in the turf business. The maintenance facility is in phase 2 of development. An office building and chemical/fertilizer building will be completed in the next two years. Clubhouse construction is set to begin within the next two years. The back 9 will officially open to the public this coming May. We will also be building a turf nursery at the maintenance facility this spring.
