Assistant Superintendent

Full-time

Diamond Ridge offers lush fairways and rolling terrain with a challenging design for all caliber of golfers. It also shares a clubhouse and expansive practice facility with The Woodlands.

It's no wonder Diamond Ridge has been a favorite golfing destination for golfers for more than 40 years. Diamond Ridge plays to a par of 71 and was designed by the legendary Ed Ault. The front and back nines are distinctly different. The front nine is open in nature, with a links feel, while the back nine is tighter and outlined by mature trees. Both nines have numerous fairway and greenside bunkers to test your accuracy. From the correct set of tees, this golf course is a pleasure to play for anyone.

The Woodlands takes golfers on a scenic journey through a world of tall, hardwood trees that guard the lush Bent Grass fairways and large, undulating greens of the course's enjoyable yet challenging 18 holes.

Designed by renowned golf course architect Lindsay Ervin, The Woodlands opened in 1998 to critical acclaim. Ervin himself said The Woodlands "truly ranks as my best design" and Washington Golf Monthly called it "the best public course in the Baltimore suburbs." Golf Digest has rated The Woodlands a "Four Star Places to Play Award Winner."

The clubhouse which is shared with Diamond Ridge, is ideal for golf events of any size and with its 36 holes on the property is a landing site for many double shotgun events in the region. The outdoor event pavilion is perfect for post tournament festivities and offers full capacity seating, scenic views and a scoreboard.
