Posted: 4/1/2024

Let's be real. No fancy resume needed. We are a privately owned 18 hole semi private golf club in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We took the course out of bankruptcy in 2020 and it is truly a gem now - read our reviews. We are not corporate run and never will be. Our superintendent is awesome and is in need of a true partner who will work with him to continue our path to be the number one destination course for people visiting the Asheville area. If you are a hard worker and willing to learn, we can grow you into this position. Of course you must have golf course experience. Our fairways, tees and greens are bent grass. We are open year round. Our members are extremely respectful and appreciative of our staff. At Reems Creek you will be treated with respect and dignity. All we ask is that you have a smile and a great attitude. Yes you have golf privileges and a shift meal (we have a great restaurant!). You won't be working 80 hour weeks - we promise. Some weekends for sure but we believe in balance of work and life. And we believe in having fun! Interested? Call me, Summer Greene, Owner, at 954-557-7617 and let's start a conversation. If you like what you hear (and I like what I hear) you will then meet our superintendent.
