Golf Course Superintendent –Sinton Municipal Golf Course

 

Golf Course Background:

The Association of the Sinton Municipal Golf Course is looking to hire a golf course superintendent. The ideal candidate would enjoy playing golf, and be willing to play a few days of the week and on weekends. Most importantly, we are looking for someone who will take pride in the Sinton Municipal Golf Course looking and playing at its very best.

Sinton Golf Association was established in 1957. The property was left to the Association by Rob Welder. The big oak trees, flat landscape, and the abundance of irrigation well water, offered the perfect environment for its intended purpose. The first nine holes of the club was apparently built in 1956. J. Carol Weaver of Weaver Construction built most of the course, along with a number of future members. Weaver was considered a Texas legend, as he was thought to be the best golfer in the area at the time even playing against Sam Sneed once. In 1968, the Association added the back nine, which was designed and built by a European golfer.

The “Heart of the Club” is a daily Pro Am, which goes back as far as any member can recollect. Every day of the week, except on Tuesday when the course is closed, at noon, there is a tournament. The tournament consists of mostly retirees and shift workers. The tournament may have 12-40 players depending on the weather and the day of the week. The games have changed over the years but the Pro Am is a constant here at Sinton Municipal Golf Course.
