Glasgow Golf Club is the premier private members golf club in the West of Scotland. It was founded in 1787 and is the 9th oldest golf club in the world.

  • Appropriate higher-level qualification(s) in turfgrass management and associated continued professional development.
  • Management or senior supervisory experience of a high-standard member’s golf course.

  • Confidence in producing appropriate operational plans, as well as operational and capital budgeting, and regular management reporting.
  • A record as an outstanding team player possessing excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to develop and motivate a team.
  • A progressive approach to course management, in tune with developing practices within the profession.
