    Moraine Country Club is seeking a qualified candidate to fill the Assistant In
    Training position for the upcoming 2019 season. A terrific opportunity for the
    right person to gain experience in preparing the golf course for the upcoming
    2019 Ohio Amateur in July.
    Moraine Country Club is an 18 Hole Championship Golf Course located in
    Kettering, Ohio. A vibrant history precedes this golf course. The course
    recently completed a total renovation in 2015. Greens (Pure Distinction), Tees
    and Fairways (007) have been re-grassed to bent-grass. Architect Keith Foster
    developed the Master plan. He was able to maintain the integrity of the golf
    course while enhancing its natural features. The property is a one of a kind. A
    Moraine is a terminal glacier, which left undulations you typically only find on
    a golf course in Ireland or Scotland. The original architect Alec “Nipper”
    Campbell was initially the golf pro at The Country Club in Brookline,
    Massachusetts. He was born and raised in Scotland and had a respect for the
    links-style golf courses in his homeland. You could only imagine how he felt
    the moment he stepped onto the property and felt like he was back in his native
    Scotland. Moraine has held the Ohio Amateur every ten years starting in
    1979, 1989, 1999, 2009, and will be hosting again in 2019. Byron Nelson won
    the 1945 PGA Championship which was the last major he won. Nelson won
    11 tournaments in a row in 1945, and the PGA at Moraine was his ninth
    victory during that streak. The streak of winning 11 PGA events in a row is
    still a record today.
    Special Requirements:
    Positive attitude, strong work ethic, able to maintain a professional
    appearance, self-motivating, and willing to work long hours. You will be
    involved in all facets of the operations including course set-up, mowing, hand
    watering, and syringing, fertilizer /chemical applications and calibrations,
    irrigation repair, aeration, topdressing, etc.
    Job Information / benefits:

    This course provides for some of the more natural and picturesque holes a golfer will find in the area. At Majestic Springs, Serafin based his creative design on the natural, challenging flow of the land here in Wilmington. His sensitivity to the existing environment resulted in Majestic Springs 220 acres of farmland becoming one of Ohio's most exciting courses, utilizing the famous links-style as defined by the natural features of the golf course. In fact, less than 200,000 yards of dirt were moved, one-third to one-half of what is typically moved to create a new course.
