Horticulturist

Full-time

Are you looking to be part of a company that will stand the test of time, create opportunities for you to grow and to have fun? Then we welcome you to join Century Golf Partners as Ballantyne Country Club’s Horticulturist.

Ballantyne Country Club is an 18 private family-oriented club in south Charlotte. The course is a Rees Jones design, originally opened in 1996. In 2015 the course underwent a renovation project that allowed us to resurface greens, rebuild bunkers adding the Better Billy Bunker drainage system, upgrades to the irrigation system, new cart paths and rebuilding and re-grassing tee tops, plus increased areas to our practice facilities.  

In 2005, several of the partners came together to realize a long-desired dream and created Century Golf Partners; a golf investment and management company. In the same year, the company also acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to the Arnold Palmer Golf Management brand and accordingly, Century Golf Partners operates many of its clubs under the Arnold Palmer Golf Management name. 

Our Purpose: To improve the lives of the people we serve.

Our Mission: To be a Good Partner.

Our Vision: To be the most sought-after business partner in golf.

Our Culture: We love serving others. We live by our team values, principles, and Quality standards to create a fun atmosphere. This is the cornerstone of our success.

This position will be part of a growing company with a portfolio of private, public and resort courses throughout the U.S. We offer cross-facility training, scholarships, and opportunities to participate in a PGA Tour event when we host The American Express at PGA WEST.
