Golf Australia is the national governing body for golf in Australia with a goal to raise the level of interest and participation in the game from grassroots golfers through to the elite levels, spectators, volunteers and associated industry bodies.

Golf Australia is currently going through a significant period of change as an organisation as a result of the incorporation of state golf member associations into the national governing body of golf through the One Golf process.

This is a newly created position reporting to the Senior Manager - Club & Facility Support. The Clubs & Facilities Support Manager - South Australia will be responsible for the delivery of Australian golf’s Club & Facility support strategy within South Australia. Additionally, the individual will assist in the creation of national Club & Facility support resources and workforce training, as well as engaging with key industry bodies such as Golf Management Australia and the Public Golf Facilities Australia committee.

Working closely with the national Club & Facility team, the individual will work with the state branches to ensure consistency and continuity of delivery in all Club & Facility support areas across the country, through the creation and subsequent roll-out of Golf Australia’s workforce training program and associated resources.

The role will suit candidates with significant golf club experience, either as a Club & Facility Manager, Assistant Manager or senior Club staff member, with a thorough understanding of the Australian and international Club & Facility support landscape. The ability to work as part of a multi-functional team is required, as is track record of multi-functional project delivery whilst simultaneously working on strategic and operational matters.

Candidates must be able to work independently to deliver KPIs, with excellent organisation and time management skills in order to prioritise tasks across daily, weekly and long-term organisation objectives.
