Would you like to work at a Top 10 course in the state of Virginia? How about one of the Top 10 Country Clubs in the nation? Or one of the Top Workplaces in Richmond, VA? Do you want to work for a club with a PGA TOUR Champions Playoff event? Does a club-wide operating budget in excess of $40 million sound like a stable environment? Then, The Country Club of Virginia has all of this and is currently seeking a talented individual to fill the position of Assistant Superintendent on our famed James River Course. For more information on our facility, click here.
This is a great opportunity for individuals who are passionate to further their career in preparation to become a successful Superintendent. Hard work is rewarded, as previous assistants have gone on to become Golf Course Superintendents. All three of our current Golf Course Superintendents were former Assistants and several others have succeeded as Superintendents at other clubs.
The Country Club of Virginia is looking for an individual to help facilitate the constant improvement of the golf course and provide exceptional experiences for our members. Assistants will have the opportunity to be hands-on in all facets of our tournament preparation and managing turf at a high level. Qualified candidates will help plan and monitor all maintenance expenses associated with golf course operations including supplies, chemicals, and fertilizers.
The Assistant Superintendent’s responsibilities will include, but are not limited to, managing the crew (24 in season), moisture management, pesticide and fertilizer applications, drainage designs and installations, implementing cultural practices, course construction projects, etc. At CCV, we are fortunate to have an irrigation department, in-house arborists, and a robust shop maintenance operation. This gives the Assistant the opportunity to learn these skills without the tasks becoming their main focus.
