Indian Bayou Golf Club, designed by Earl Stone originally and for renovation, opened in 1978 and is one of the few classic parkland designs on the northern gulf coast.  Out reputation for player-focused course conditioning creates an expectation among our members and guests that we are to meet twelve months of the year.  We maintain TifEagle greens, and 419 bermudagrass wall to wall.  This spring we will finish the final phase of turf renovation to Zeon zoysia in our club grounds and bunker renovation. 

We are seeking a self-motivated, driven individual to be a key member of the golf course operations staff as the assistant-in-training.  There is no time limit for holding the position but it is for someone wanting to learn and work toward becoming a golf course superintendent. 

The assistant-in-training will deal with all aspects of the operation and will work closely with the superintendent and assistant superintendent in developing and implementing the golf course management plan.  The AIT's primary responsibility is assisting the superintendent in the management of the IPM program and is primarily responsible for it's implementation, record keeping, and inventory.  Fertilizer and pesticide applications are shared with the assistant and select senior staff.   Other technical responsibilities will include periodic course preparation, equipment operation and cultivation practices. 

Management duties will progress through project management, short - medium range planning, scheduling, and staff supervision.
