Golf Course Maintenance: Team Foreman at Tres Rios Golf Club
15205 W Vineyard Ave. Goodyear, AZ 85338
The ideal Team Foreman applicant should be self-motivated and have a strong golf maintenance work history. This key position requires multiple high-level skills and thorough understanding of golf course maintenance procedures and proper team supervision. The Foreman reports directly to the golf course Superintendent and/or to the Assistant Superintendent.
This position will join the Southwest Golf Management (SWGM) team – which operates the Tres Rios Golf Course. Over the coming years, Junior National Foundation will continue to renovate the current course (new mini-verde greens and bunkers installed in 2022) as well as build an additional 18-hole golf course, new driving range and clubhouse on the southern side of the property as well as expanding or rebuilding the maintenance building. Junior National Foundation is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization with the mission to change the lives of youth through the game of golf.
About Tres Rios Golf Club
Located in the foothills of the Estrella Mountains, Tres Rios is a Red Lawrence designed and links-style golf course which opened in the mid 1960’s as one of the first desert courses in the area.
Originally Sierra Estrella, Tres Rios is part of the Estrella Mountain Regional Park, and therefore a municipal course. While having some challenging years in its past, the course is in the process of its revival. Since 2021, the Foundation has put in roughly $2M to improve the Toro irrigation system, completely renovate the greens with mini-verde grass (summer 2022) and the renovation of all bunkers was also completed last year. Much more work to improve this middle-aged gem is in the plans for the coming years including new tees, improved drainage, reduced water usage through irrigated turf reduction and removal of eucalyptus trees, new on-course amenities and regressing of fairways to name but a few. What a great time to be a part of this transformation…and we have barely mentioned building of our 2nd 18-hole course and new clubhouse!
