If you're looking to work in an environment where the ultimate goal is to continue pushing to achieve the next level of turf maintenance, all while working in an atmosphere that is geared toward a more relaxed working environment, then perhaps Willow Ridge is for you. The Equipment managers main task will be to maintain our current fleet of equipment with both preventative maintenance, and general maintenance that comes with equipment attrition throughout the course of the season. A new shop was constructed in 2012 at the club, so the maintenance facility is up to date with ample space. The previous mechanic has retired and moved on to greener pastures, but throughout the course of the year has helped me with large repairs and issues I haven’t had the pleasure of dealing with.
Devise preventative maintenance program for equipment fleet
Keep equipment operational and in good working order throughout the season
Monitor and schedule gas and diesel deliveries
Maintain sufficient parts inventory for heavily used equipment
Perform Blade, reel, and bed knife grinding (Foley grinder on site)
Maintain records and history of repairs and reoccurring maintenance
Other general tasks related to equipment maintenance
Welding is not a mandatory, but would be greatly appreciated
Maintain open lines of communication with the superintendent so our operation can run smoothly
In large, I'm a laid back person looking for someone either already proficient as a mechanic or still growing into becoming a better mechanic, who at the end of the day is a good human being. I like to think of this place as a fun place to work, where baggage remains in the car. The previous mechanic has also mentioned he will gladly help to bring things he’s experienced over the years to your attention, and well as offer guidance to make your transition seamless.
Minimum of High School education preferred, and a working knowledge of equipment and the tools needed to efficiently maintain the fleet.
Previous golf course mechanic skills preferred, but assistant mechanics as well as those who have worked in the automotive industry are all viable. I'm not a believer that you know everything day one, but that as time progresses you learn and adapt and become proficient.
