Wilmington Country Club Grounds Department maintains a strong team centric atmosphere with emphasis on promoting from within, and placing assistants into superintendent roles managing our two golf courses or through external opportunities. In the past four years, Wilmington Country Club has placed two course superintendents into positions of their own. The Club’s property encompasses 345 acres, consisting of 36-holes of golf and practice areas; racquets amenities with clay courts, grass courts, hard courts, paddle courts and squash courts.
The South Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. in 1959 and renovated by Andrew Green in 2020, has played host to a number of USGA and national amateur championships. Most recently, the club hosted the penultimate tournament for the PGA TOUR, the 2022 BMW Championship.
The North Course, designed by Dick Wilson in 1961, will undergo a renovation by Andrew Green in late 2024 that will include a property wide irrigation installation. Once completed, the new layout will complement the Club’s award winning racquets program that has hosted many prestigious events including the National Junior and Senior Tennis Championships.

With this mindset, we offer an environment of learning and supportiveness, strengthened not only by our professionals throughout the Club, but also the network of 1500 members to aid your career path.
