Golf Course Superintendent — Beaumont Country Club

Beaumont Country Club is seeking a Golf Course Superintendent. The Beaumont Country Club, one of the oldest clubs in Texas, was organized in 1906 and opened the next year.  Constructed on the bank of the Neches River, the club featured a golf course, bowling alley, boat docks, tennis courts, and a plantation-style clubhouse.  The club had complete facilities for wedding parties, anniversary celebrations, and corporate meetings.  The Beaumont Enterprise praised the new club as “a favorite retreat” with a beautiful setting “on the banks of the river . . . in the shade of the trees.”

The BCC course, long famous for towering pine trees that crowd narrow fairways, was completely renovated during 2004.  In a project directed by Houston golf course architect, Baxter Spann and costing approximately $2 million, the course was rebuilt by Landscapes Unlimited, LLC, one of the largest golf course development companies in the United States.  All tee boxes, fairways, bunkers, and greens were reconstructed, and new drainage and irrigation systems were installed.  Architect Spann is very pleased with the outcome.  Praising the original layout by Scotsman Alex Findlay and the natural beauty of the wooded setting, Spann points with pride at the new rolling fairways, deep fairway bunkers, and undulating greens.

We are looking for a motivated candidate to manage the maintenance crew and golf course grounds. Candidate’s duties will include overall golf course maintenance, budgeting, fertilizer and chemical applications and record keeping, mowing schedules, irrigation programs and maintenance, and other daily golf course operations. The golf course includes three acres of Mini-Verde greens, Tifway 419 fairways, tees, and approaches.  BCC also added a full short game practice facility in 2016 for Lamar University including a new putting green, chipping green, and two bunkers that allows players to practice a variety of shots.

4 year Agronomy degree preferred, 2 year degree will be considered

Current or ability to obtain Texas pesticide applicator license within 90 days

2-4 years golf course maintenance experience

Working knowledge of golf course maintenance
