Assistant Greenkeeper

Wimbledon Park Golf Club invites you to apply for the position of Assistant Greenkeeper. The successful candidate will join our existing team of 10.

The Course

Wimbledon Park Golf Club is set on a Capability Brown landscape and was designed by the famous architect Willie Park Jr. It is a private members club just a stone’s throw away from the famous All England Lawn Tennis Club.

With the aid of architect Tim Lobb of Lobb and Partners, Wimbledon Park Golf Club has recently undergone a full course restoration back to its early 1900’s style. The development included: a brand-new Toro Lynx irrigation system covering all playing surfaces; the rebuilding of 66 brand new bunkers complete with blinder liner and 2015 saw the first phase of a 3-5-year programme to install a brand new primary and secondary drainage system to all fairways, approaches, carries and semi-rough areas.

In 2016, the team won the ‘BIGGA Greenkeeping Achievement of the Year’ award.
