Designed by Bobby Weed and established in 2000, The Olde Farm Golf Club was promptly given the recognition it deserved; garnering "Golf Digest's" distinction of "America's Best New Private Course." Consistently ranked in the Top 2 in the State of Virginia and "Golf Week's" "Top 100 Modern Courses," The Olde Farm consistently strives to provide championship quality conditions to members and guests. The club features an 18 hole, par 71 layout, with an extra "19th" hole, as well as a par 3 short course (The Orchard Course) which all culminate into a rural private retreat for members and guests where the focus is on the game of golf, fun, and relaxation. As we like to say, it's "The Olde Farm Experience." The club will be doing a complete bunker renovation this fall along with some tee work and other miscellaneous construction projects. Looking to the future, other capital projects may include greens renovation, maintenance complex, and other construction projects.
The ideal candidate will have obtained a 2 or 4 year degree or certificate in Turfgrass Management or related field from an accredited university.
Candidates should have prior golf course management experience consisting of but not limited to 2-5 years working as a crew member, AIT, or an Assistant Superintendent at a similar facility as The Olde Farm.
The Assistant Superintendent position will work alongside the other assistants and directly with the Golf Course Superintendent in order to match or exceed the standards and expectations of the club. Responsibilities will include, but not be limited to staff management, chemical applications, water management, record keeping, and communication with the GM, Owner, CFO, Golf Professional, as well as other club personnel. The Assistant Superintendent must be self-motivated, work efficiently and diligently, be innovative and creative, possess a sense of urgency, possess a strong desire to become a golf course superintendent, and have strong written and verbal communication skills. One must also be able to obtain a Virginia Pesticide Applicator's License. The Assistant Superintendent is responsible for assuming all duties of the Golf Course Superintendent in their absence.
