Assistant Superintendent - Iron Valley Golf Club, Lebanon PA
The Iron Valley Golf Club, along with Iron Valley Tubing is seeking a fully qualified and certified Agronomic professional to work directly with the Grounds Superintendent. Membership in the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) is preferred but is not mandatory.
The Iron Valley Golf Club is a P.B. Dye designed masterpiece that draws play from the entire Mid-Atlantic region. The golf course is consistently rated in the top 10 “Courses you can Play” lists for Pennsylvania. The 2020 Golf Season produced record revenue for the property. Iron Valley is growing and needs your help in order to continue to grow and improve.
Iron Valley Tubing is heading into its 6th year of operations. The tubing park is located on the driving range of the Golf Club. Iron Valley Tubing is Pennsylvania’s preeminent tubing park. At over 900 feet long with an elevation drop of 127 feet, it is an exhilarating “roller coaster” on snow.
The opening is a full time, year round position that starts immediately. This is a genuine “working” position as well as a “supervisory” one. The ideal candidate will get their hands dirty on a daily basis.
This position reports directly to the Golf Course Superintendent. During the golf season, the assistant will provide an additional set of “educated” eyes and ears on the property. They will become an integral part of the team that has consistently provided the daily fee player with the excellent course conditions that they have come to expect at Iron Valley. Giving the discerning upscale golfer yet another reason to return to Iron Valley again and again.
During “Tubing” season the ideal applicant will take “ownership” of the tubing hill and its conditions. Don’t worry if you know nothing about the making or grooming of snow. We will teach you both the art and the science of all things “snow”.
This position is a fantastic opportunity for the newly minted or educated turf grass professional. You will work all 12 months, and you will have the golden opportunity to continue to learn the craft of Agronomy alongside a seasoned professional. You will also expand your knowledge base into another entirely different industry – “Winter Sports and Recreation”.
