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).
