Meadowlands Golf Club, located in Winston Salem, NC, is looking to hire a qualified golf course superintendent to oversee the maintenance operations for an 18 hole semi-private property. This would be an excellent opportunity for a strong assistant looking to take the next step in their career.

Meadowlands was constructed in 1995 under design direction from Hale Irwin. The club does an average of 27,000 rounds/year. The greens are roughly 130,000 sqft, built to USGA spec, and grassed with PennLinks bentgrass. Fairways and tees are 419 Bermuda with some Zeon Zoysia tees.
