Stowe Country Club

Second Assistant Superintendent Position Available

The Club at Spruce Peak is seeking a qualified applicant for the position of second assistant superintendent at Stowe Country Club.  The primary role of this position is to work directly with the first assistant superintendent in day to day maintenance and management of the golf course. Stowe Country Club is associated with Stowe Mountain Club as part of the 36-hole golf offering at The Club at Spruce Peak. Both golf courses are managed under the leadership of the Director of Agronomy. The Director of Agronomy makes recommendations and develops plans for daily operation, but on course decisions will be left primarily to the first and second assistant superintendents. The second assistant needs to be proficient in timely decision making, multi-tasking, crew leadership and knowledge of golf maintenance practices. The second assistant superintendent will be required to assist and/or lead project work including drainage, irrigation, construction, etc. The two assistants will share responsibilities in managing the crew, job assignment, agronomic and cultural practices, chemical/fertilizer applications, and water management.

 Stowe Country Club is an 18-hole semi-private resort golf club designed by William Mitchell that opened in 1964. The golf course is set in the iconic village of Stowe, VT with views of the Worcester mountain range, Mt. Mansfield, and Camel’s Hump. The course sees approximately 18,000 rounds annually. The golf course is mainly a creeping bentgrass and annual bluegrass blend with a central Rain Bird irrigation control. Starting in 2012, we began the long-term transformation of Stowe Country Club into one of the premier courses in Vermont. The first phases of our master plan occurred over the past several years with tree clearings, new tee boxes, drainage and fescue grow-in. Currently, the next major phase of the plan consists of a complete redesign/reconstruction of the #7 and #8 green complex. The two new green complexes opened on May 28th.  Stowe Country Club has chosen Beau Welling Design to assist with this renovation and to stay on as part of future renovations.
