Seeking a highly motivated individual to join our team as an assistant superintendent. WindRiver operates several different businesses including, but not limited to, golf, club membership, hospitality, dining, events, real estate, and marina management. WindRiver is located on the shores of Lake Tellico just south of Knoxville, Tennessee. We are an 18 hole championship course designed by Bob Cupp. The course consists of 419 bermudagrass tees, fairways, and roughs with bentgrass greens. In June of 2022 we will be converting greens surfaces to Prizm zoysia. This will be an opportunity to manage a new turf that is proving to be an excellent alternative to bentgrass within the transition zone. Expectations for this position are high. You will be required to perform all duties on the course to include crew management/training, chemical and fertilizer applications, instruction and supervision of safety protocols, along with irrigation scheduling and repair. You will report directly to the superintendent and be able to serve in that capacity in his absence. You will need the ability to prepare clear and concise reports along with overseeing safety protocols. You will need to have a current Tennessee Pesticide License or the ability to obtain one within 90 days.
2-4 years of golf course course experience. Management experience preferred, but willing to train the right candidate.
You will need to have an eye for detail and a thorough understanding for the demands in this industry. Physical Requirements: Must be able to bend, stoop, climb, twist, kneel, lift, push, and pull items weighing up to 50lbs. Must be able to stand and continuously move for up to 8 hours at a time.
