About the Head Golf Professional

Exeter Golf and Country Club is one of the leading golf clubs in the South West of England with a history dating back to 1895. The par 69 golf course is re-launching this year with a new, improved layout, designed by leading international golf course architect Tom Mackenzie of Mackenzie and Ebert. The course features what is deemed to be the most challenging 18th hole in the region. With a buoyant and active golf membership, new Get Into Golf programmes, Junior Academy, practice ground, short game area and future plans to development a new driving range, the club is looking to move forward. A new Head Golf Professional is required to maximise the opportunities and develop the club as the premier golf destination in the region.

Exeter Golf and Country Club is a private members club which welcomes visiting guests and golfers to our 120 acre golf course and leisure venue. The club also offers indoor and outdoor swimming pools, gym and fitness suite, tennis and squash courts, private event spaces, spa and restaurant. Uniquely located so close to the city centre of Exeter, the club is an elegant leisure retreat for individuals of all ages and families.

Although self-employed with their own retail outlet, the Head Golf Professional will be required to work closely with the team at Exeter Golf and Country Club, particularly the Golf Manager, General Manager, Golf Course Manager and Marketing Manager. Together the team will raise standards and deliver a consistent service to ensure an excellent experience for members and guests. Through a progressive strategy, relationship building, retail skills and marketing initiatives the Head Golf Professional will be an integral member of the wider team at the club, commercially aligned with the overall club strategy.
