With 2013 truly coming to a close for us in the Pheasant Run Turf Department on Friday. Thoughts and preparations have already shifted to the 2014 golf season. Most years there tends to be some turnover in staff, and 2014 will be no exception. With some students moving on to their chosen career path and some of my semi-retired staff officially retiring for good. There will be some openings on our team for next season.
So what do we have to offer? Well besides your wage we do offer golfing privileges, uniforms, safety personal protective equipment, training in all areas of course maintenance and a great working environment. The stigma has long been that we only cut grass. Well the fact is that cutting grass is a very small part in the overall operation. There will be no shortage in the variety of tasks available in any given work day.
While we do work hard, we still have a lot of fun getting the work done;
Cutting greens, tees and fairways with a variety of precision mowing equipment;
Teamwork during greens aeration;
Pulling together during times when mother nature calls the shots (which happens more than you’d think or I’d like);
Sod work and course beatification;
Hand-watering during high stress periods;
There are not a lot of summer jobs where you get to watch the sun rise almost everyday;
And even on cloudy days, the scenery isn’t hard to take;
And you get to appreciate what the finished product on this large canvas can look like;
And the changing seasons;
So if a summer job (for university students) or a seasonal position are of interest to you. Work days will consist of 4, 9 hour days (5am-2:30pm) and one weekend day shift (5am-10am). Please feel free to contact me at Andrew@pheasantrungolf.com or forward me a resume. I look forward to hearing from you and will begin conducting interviews in early February.
There will also be one position open for someone who has studied or is studying Turfgrass Management as well. The Assistant Superintendent position will be posted through many avenues early in the New Year. This position will offer year round work and an opportunity to learn and grow in a very busy golf course environment. Please stay posted to this blog as the position will also be posted on here.
While this is likely one of my final posts for 2013. Here’s to a very Happy Holiday Season and a Happy New Year.
