  • Manage, develop and motivate your small, friendly golf team
  • Recruit team members who have the personality and attitude to wow our customers
  • Deliver first class leadership and training to the food and beverage team
  • Deliver excellent customer service by getting to know our members!
  • Expand the membership, society and bar sales
  • Be responsible for business planning and budget control
  • Create a friendly atmosphere and bring your passion for golf
  • Improve sales and profitability of the catering department
  • Demonstrate excellent leadership and technical skills within a hospitality environment providing complete customer & member satisfaction at all times.
  •  Strong Food and Beverage background required with previous experience in managing functions/weddings and health and safety is desirable.
