  1. The Town of Trumbull will close the job posting Tomorrow, Tuesday 2/18/2020. No other candidates will be accepted after they close the listing. Tashua Knolls Golf Course is a 27-hole facility features an original par 72 golf course stretching 6,540 yards from the championship tees that is sure to challenge beginners and accomplished golfers alike. The original 18-hole layout was built in 1976 by golf architect Al Zikorus, the course is situated on picturesque farmland originally inhabited by the Tamtashua Indians and later the Mallet family of Trumbull. Tashua Knolls hosted the 2017 CT. Amateur, the first public course to host the event. An additional 9-hole layout, designed and supervised by noted golf architect Michael Zikorus (Al’s son), was completed in 2004. The terrain for this new layout presented unique challenges, but the resulting Zikorus design produced a family-friendly gem that will challenge golfers of all skill levels. The media have already given the course many accolades and it continues to grow in popularity with area golfers. More about Tashua Glen. Your round will be in a classic New England setting with rolling hills and great views. The course features mature trees, original stone walls, a 200 year old Church and cemetery, and just enough water to make things interesting! Deer, turkeys, and other wildlife are frequent visitors. Depending upon your level of skill, there are as many as seven holes where water may influence your strategy and club selection. The course also features two putting greens, a chipping green, full practice range, locker facilities for men and women, a full-service pro shop, as well as restaurant and banquet facilities. A major bunker renovation project at the end of the 2013 season adds to an already fantastic facility and a “must play” on your list this season! Tashua Glen is a 9-hole public golf course located adjacent to the Tashua Knolls 18-hole championship course in the Town of Trumbull. Completed in 2005. Tashua Glen is pleased to be the first course in Connecticut recognized as a Family Course by the National Golf Course Owners Association. The length of many golf courses takes away some of the fun of learning to play golf. Many 18-hole courses measure 5,000 yards from the forward tees — still too long for kids and adult beginners. A Family Course set-up adds two additional tee locations (Yellow at 3,750 yards and Green at 2,200 yards) so the entire family can enjoy their round together. The Assistant Golf Course Superintendent will be heavily involved in the upcoming projects. We will be installing drainage, rebuilding tees, restoring key features of the golf course. If you do not have a construction experience, you will learn on the job.
