Rye Golf Hiring Assistant Golf Course Superintendent at $50K+

It looks to be a demanding position in exchange for $50K in comp: "Qualified candidates must have at least an associate’s degree in agronomy/turf management (or a closely related field) in addition to a minimum of two years’ experience in turf management. Working knowledge of drainage and experience with golf course construction projects is preferable. The ideal candidate will be a hands-on assistant that leads by example. Interested candidates must already have, or have the ability to obtain, a New York State Pesticide Applicator’s License… Qualified candidates will be able to work 60 hours or more per week in season…"

 

The club definitely needs an expert in pesticide application.

Let's hope RGC gets a capable hand… The full job description follows:
