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.

Requirements include:

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

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

Experience:

2-4 years golf course maintenance experience

Working knowledge of golf course maintenance

Compensation

55-70K annually

Paid vacation

Golfing privileges

Annual uniform allowance

Dues for GCSAA chapters and pesticide license fees

Assistant Superintendent — Bent Tree Country Club (Dallas)

 

Experience:

Must have prior experience on a golf course.  Either an internship or previous work experience

Course Description

Originally built in 1972, the Bent Tree Country Club par 72 layout was the design work of renowned golf course architect Desmond Muirhead. Utilizing his knowledge of designing courses in the flat terrain of Florida, Muirhead first carved out the many water features around the course and then used the excavated material to form the elevated tees and greens, and to mold the meandering fairways. Over the next few years, multiple species of new trees were added to help define the course flow and to add beauty to the revived cotton farm.

Then, thirty years later, in 2002, the Club’s Board of Directors empowered nationally known architect Keith Foster to rebuild and rework the original blueprint and upgrade Muirhead’s design into a more traditional and timeless layout. The result is a beautiful par 71 course that is highlighted by water features testing players on 14 of the 18 holes, 62 chiseled and brilliant white bunkers that define the driving zones and putting complexes, and exquisite Bentgrass putting surfaces, considered by many, especially our Club members, to be the finest in the Metroplex.

Fun and challenging, the course annually hosts an assortment of member tournaments for men, women, couples, and juniors. In addition, it has gained the respect of the LPGA by hosting their Mary Kay Classic for three years, as well as the PGA Senior Tour, by hosting the Reunion Pro-Am for three years and the Bank One Championship for two years. In 2014, Bent Tree Country Club hosted the Women’s Texas State Amateur Championship and the following year hosted the Men’s Texas State Amateur Championships.Champions like Tom Watson, Larry Nelson, Jan Stephenson, Don January, Orville Moody, and many others add Bent Tree Country Club to their impressive list of tour site wins.
