With a prime location in Essex County, New Jersey, near Manhattan and Hoboken, Montclair Golf Club provides an energetic environment with increasingly modern resort-style amenities.
As our next Assistant Golf Course Superintendent, you will be engaged into both major project management and daily operations that will provide a rewarding and challenging environment. The individual should be excited to handle varying professional responsibilities from pest and water management applications, executing daily operations to growing their managerial skills.
We will create opportunities for you to accomplish your personal and professional goals. The Assistant Superintendent will build their portfolio of turf expertise, people management, project management and networking to advance in the industry.
The individual should bring accountability to work, desire to build relationships with others, achieve goals consistently and efficiently, require ongoing and thorough training opportunities to develop expertise and increase confidence. Most importantly, have fun maintaining one of the premier golf facilities in New Jersey.
Founded in 1893, Montclair Golf Club is one of the nation’s oldest golf clubs, which began as a single course in the Town of Montclair. By 1899, the first 18-hole course, designed by Tom Bendelow, was established roughly upon the location of the present-day first and second nines.
In 1920, the legendary Scottish architect, Donald Ross, was commissioned to design the first, second and third nines. After the original Clubhouse was destroyed by fire two years later, a larger facility was constructed and still stands at the core of our current Colonial-style clubhouse.
In October 1928, the Club added a fourth nine designed by Golden Era of Golf architect, Charles Banks.
Recently, we have committed an $18 million investment into our facilities and amenities to ensure every Montclair Golf Club member has the opportunity to pursue their passions. We also believe this provides a fantastic learning and development opportunity for turf professionals.
From renovated golf courses to a brand-new resort-style pool and paddle complex to state-of-the-art tennis courts. You can check in on completed improvements in our master plan video.
