Candidates interested in the position should be detail oriented, self-motivated, positive, disciplined, and able to comfortably work in a team environment.  The second assistant will work closely with both the first assistant and the superintendent to continuously produce high quality playing conditions.  Qualified individuals will have the opportunity to sharpen his/her knowledge on fertilizer and pesticide application, course setup, crew management, disease identification, and water management in order to further advance his/her career as a turf manager.  The second assistant must be able to obtain a Maryland State Pesticide and Fertilizer License within 90 days of employment.

Salary - $40,000+ depending on experience.  Full benefit package including health, dental, and life insurance, paid annual vacation, sick leave, 401(k), golfing privileges, pro shop discount, meals, and uniforms.  Paid dues for local and national associations.
