  1. We are seeking focused, passionate, and driven individuals who are highly motivated to learn and advance their careers in the golf maintenance industry. The right candidate will have the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with the Superintendent and other Assistant Superintendents on a daily basis. Our operation revolves around an established team atmosphere which has allowed us to completely transform the golf course over the last three years. Assistant Superintendents will work closely with the Superintendent to plan, manage, and execute daily objectives on the golf course including, but not limited to: moisture management, aerification and cultural programs, chemical and fertilizer calibration, application, and documentation, operation of all equipment, installation of irrigation and drainage infrastructure, record keeping and daily scheduling. In the last three years, we have completed several major golf course capital improvement projects. These include the renovation of all 92 golf course bunkers, expansion and re-grading of all putting surfaces, expansion of fairway surfaces by 9 acres, installation of new irrigation infrastructure around greens and approaches, removal of several hundred trees, installation of a 7,500 Poa annua nursery, installation of a new chemical building and sand silo, and a full cart path renovation. We are currently in the process of re-building our irrigation pump station which will be completed prior to the upcoming 2020 golf season. In the fall of 2020, we will embark on a phase two renovation working with Golf Course Architect Keith Foster. This renovation will include the installation of several new bunkers, the renovation of several tee complexes, and further fairway expansions. In the fall of 2021, we will begin the installation of a new wall-to-wall irrigation system throughout the remainder of the golf course. Over the last three years we have successfully transformed the golf course conditions, aesthetics, and Member golf experience. Additionally, we have put a priority on moving Assistant Superintendents into Head Superintendent positions. In the last four months, two of our Assistants have obtained Superintendent positions.

  2. We are seeking focused, hard-working, and driven individuals who are motivated to learn and advance in the golf course industry. Interns will work closely with the management staff in the planning and execution of daily maintenance objectives. Interns will be involved in all fundamental aspects of the operation including but not limited to: water management, aerification, plant-protectant calibration, application, and documentation, operation of all equipment, record keeping, and daily scheduling. Comments: Founded in 1890, The Apawamis Club is the 6th-oldest private club in the United States and steeped in history. The Club remains on the forefront with world class facilities with an active and family oriented membership. Apawamis plays over typically rugged Westchester terrain, and demands accuracy off the tee. However, the challenge lies in the small greens, which are fast and slick, demanding defensive approach shots to specific target areas below the cup. Ben Hogan once called Apawamis “the toughest short golf course I have ever played.” Golf Course Facts: 18-Hole Golf Course – 6,741 Yards from the back tees Designed by Willie Dunn and renovated by Keith Foster in 2017* Golf Maintenance Facility renovated in 2012 A Golf Performance Center built in 2012 features two indoor / outdoor hitting bays open year-round, equipped with the most current club fitting and putting systems.

This project, completed in the winter of 2017, encompassed a renovation of all bunkers, expansion of putting greens by 15,000 ft2, expansion of the fairways by 8 acres, and installation of new irrigation infrastructure around the greens and approaches. * During the winter of 2019, we will be reconstructing our pump station and pumping infrastructure.
