2nd ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT
Mountain Ridge Country Club, West Caldwell, NJ
Our historic 18-hole Donald Ross layout is 7100 Yards from the tips over a 280-acre property. It features two 9-hole loops, both of which return to the elevated clubhouse in the distance. Our newly constructed practice facility sits between the two nines and contains large target greens, a short game practice area, and a golf learning center, which offers state-of-the-art swing analysis and club fitting technology. Last year we had the honor of hosting the 105th Met Open Championship. Continuing the tradition in 2021, of a long list of hosting past major events, we will be hosting the Founders Cup, a televised LPGA event in October.
The Second Assistant Superintendent will work under the supervision of the Golf Course Superintendent and the First Assistant in the daily operation of the golf course facility. The individual will work closely with the irrigation tech, spray tech, and rest of the grounds crew to maintain daily procedures. This will include planning, scheduling, record keeping, course set-up, IPM scouting, training, crew supervision, pesticide/fertilizer application, irrigation set-up, and other maintenance practices to maintain the golf course to a high standard each day. We will be continuing our ongoing construction projects from last year which include bunker renovations, new pro tees, XGD green drainage, and other drainage projects throughout the property. Also, major tree removal will be an ongoing project throughout the season.
