Assistant Golf Course Superintendent

Posted: 03/21/2021

The Keweenaw Mountain Lodge is seeking an Assistant Golf Course Superintendent that wants to develop professionally and be a part of the golf course maintenance team to maintain the quality turf conditions at our wilderness 9-hole golf course

The position will initially be an understudy with the current golf course superintendent, Bill Alband, who will be retiring at the end of the 2021 season. Bill has been working on the golf course at the resort for more than 25 years.  After the 2021 season, you will transition into the head superintendent position.

This position will start in April / May 2021 with a focus on the summer activities at the Lodge’s golf course.  The main requirement is the summer operations and ensuring the golf course is in good condition for golfers. However, ideally, the candidate will want to work year-round at the Lodge. This would entail focusing on growing grass and the winter maintaining the trails (grooming).

Primary responsibilities and activities performed

The assistant golf course superintendent’s main job responsibilities include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • the day to day operation under the guidance of the superintendent
  • organize and implement the daily tasks of the golf course maintenance personal
  • help create pesticide and fertilizer programs with the Superintendent and make sure programs are followed throughout the season
  • Develop the plan for becoming a certified Audubon Society Golf Course
  • Equipment operator
  • Mowing grass
  • Water management
  • Fertilizer and pesticide applications
  • Spray application record keeping
  • Task scheduling
  • Communicate with personnel

  • Minimum 2-year college agronomy degree preferred
  • Either has already, or able to obtain, a Michigan Pesticide applicators license within the 2021 golf season.
  • Knowledge of regulatory requirements and record keeping as required by local, state, and federal laws

At the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, we strive to provide a fun, joyous, and adventuresome working environment. An ideal employee behaves with integrity, honesty and is always seeking opportunities to learn. The candidate we are seeking will provide excellent customer service but will also support and help colleagues across the Lodge’s various departments.


This position runs April / May through August / Fall and ideally becomes a year-round position (with both summer and winter outdoor activities).
