Golf Course Superintendent or Sports Turf Manager job


My journey to this point has allowed me to work my way from General Laborer to Grounds Superintendent within a short period of time. Having taken a year and a half to accomplish some personal goals of mine, I am prepared to re-enter the golf course management industry and work toward my ultimate goal of managing my own course one day. I am reliable, hard-working, and committed to the goals that I set out to accomplish. I am currently searching for an opportunity to knock the dust off, regain my commercial applicator license (3-B), and persevere in accomplishing my goals. I am willing to relocate, with financial assistance, for the right opportunity. Thank you for your time.
