Head Professional

Gerrards Cross Golf Club

Due to a recent resignation, the Gerrards Cross Golf Club wishes to appoint a new Head Professional.

To date the Club has engaged the services of professional staff through a traditional service contract and the Head Professional has provided retail and coaching services to members and visitors.

Central to the new role will be coaching. The Head Professional, supported by one or more assistants, will be responsible for coaching the Club’s Academy members, our Junior Scholars and group lessons. Additionally the Head Professional will be required to provide one-to-one coaching as requested by members and visitors.

The second requirement of the role will be to support the management of golf operations. Golf operations includes: staffing our golf reception, managing competitions and course usage, equipment rental and sales of club-branded clothing and consumables (balls, gloves, soft drinks, etc.).
The Head Professional will be a member of the Club’s management team and will be expected to play with members in support of Club activities.

Based on our assessment of the retail market for golf products (clubs, trolleys, ‘designer’ golf clothing, etc.), the Club does not require the Head Professional to manage a traditional ‘Pro Shop’. However if applicants consider that the Club and wider market in Gerrards Cross could support such a shop, the Board could be prepared to make retail space available to the Head Professional. If applicants wish to make a compelling case for a Pro Shop they will be required to submit a business plan as part of the final stage of the interview process.

The Club is prepared to offer either a service contract or an employment contract to the new Head Professional.Applicants should indicate which of these options they would prefer and propose an outline of the terms under which they would wish to operate.These terms should focus on the incentive arrangements that would apply and how risks should be allocated between the Head Professional and the Club.

CV’s and Proposals to be sent to Adam Grint, General Manager at adam@gxgolf.co.uk or by post to Gerrards Cross Golf Club, Chalfont Park, Gerrards Cross, Bucks, SL9 0QA

Application Deadline: 22nd November.
