A hard working, skilled and adaptable Greenkeeper with 10 years experience in the sports turf industry. Always committed to his role within a team. Works well on collaborative tasks but also thrives on achieving consistently impressive results while working alone. Resourceful enough to overcome problems, responsible enough to complete tasks quickly, and experienced enough to provide the meticulous attention to detail required.
Reporting to the Owner and Director of Golf. Responsible for managing over 400 acres, comprising of a 27 hole golf course, 20 bay driving range, clubhouse, car-park and surrounding areas. Evaluating the playability of the courses. Setting up a golf course maintenance plan to ensure the golf course is maintained to the standard expected at all times, and that all maintenance tasks are completed. To ensure all machinery is in good working order, and to act quickly to solve or avoid potential problems. Ensuring all required materials are in stock at all times. Ensuring the course is adequately staffed at all times and to train and motivate those staff to work quickly and safely according to health and safety policy. To brief teams, managers, staff and golfers on matters concerning the golf course. Planning a program of course improvements in liaison with the owner. As well as having an extensive knowledge of all matters to do with the infrastructure of the golf club. This role has been a challenging one, but I believe I have made an impact. I have been resourceful with the assets I have available to me, added structure to working practices and the course has steadily improved since my arrival, even as many unexpected issues have arisen, including the sabotage of 14 greens by vandals. We have not only retained, but gained members over this period, something I take pride in due to the efforts required, although the course still has some way to go before it reaches my preferred standard.
Reported directly to the head greenkeeper to assist in all areas of upkeep of the golf course and surrounding areas. Being already familiar with the role and previously valued by the company, I was sent to college to achieve my NVQ Level 2 and PA1&2 qualification's. After which, as well as all previous cutting & maintenance tasks, I took more of an active role in fertilizing, spraying, irrigation and renovation of required areas. I was also expected to help train and manage less experienced staff, and act as team leader on project work not involving senior staff. I relished the chance to complete my training in a job that I knew I enjoyed, an I feel I repayed the company for their faith in me with the extra responsibilities I took on, and commitment I showed to the role.
Various roles involving, turfing, scarifying, top-dressing & overseeding high quality lawns, hard landscaping, planting of trees/shrubs, manual labour and operating heavy machinery.
