JOB: General Manager – Aston Hills Golf Club at Mount Barker

POSTED ON April 12, 2024 @ 2:39 pm


Widely regarded as the Adelaide Hills’ best-kept golfing secret, Aston Hills Golf Club is located in Mount Barker, just 20 minutes easy drive up the South Eastern Freeway and minutes from historic Hahndorf and many of the Hill’s wineries.  The key pillars required for the club to flourish are all in place.

The financial position is strong, well managed and the course is at a new peak.  So much is being done well, and the Club has great opportunities before it with the clubhouse, junior development, and events.  Key projects both within the Club’s boundary and nearby present both opportunity and challenge.

The role

This creates a rare and exciting opportunity to appoint a suitably qualified professional to oversee the operations of the Club and contribute to the future of this truly unique golf club.  Reporting to the Club President and Committee, the new General Manager will be armed with a Strategic Plan, autonomy and clear direction.

Responsibilities include:

  • controlling the finances of the Club;
  • working closely with the Committee to shape the Club’s brand, and seeking out relevant marketing/PR opportunities to promote the Club and its facilities;
  • implementing strategies to retain existing members and continue to grow the membership;
  • overseeing the growth and further potential of the Food & Beverage and Function operations;
  • selecting, encouraging and developing staff to achieve their maximum potential;
  • ensuring legislative compliance (including as the Club’s RP & Public Officer);
  • working closely with the Golf Professional to administer the golfing operations of the Club;
  • liaising with reciprocal clubs, Golf Australia and other key sporting and local community bodies.

Applications are encouraged ideally from applicants with experience managing a similar golfing or related hospitality establishment or those in a supervisory role seeking to take the next step in their career.  Exposure to the application of contemporary marketing, PR, and brand strategies will be highly regarded.

High levels of commercial acumen, complemented by drive, energy, superior communication, negotiation, stakeholder engagement and management, and leadership capacity are all essential qualities sought, as is the authenticity, integrity and credibility necessary to inspire others.

This is a truly unique opportunity at a time of significant and continued population growth in the district, a resurgence in golf participation, and a Committee that is both aligned and committed to seeing the Club realise its full potential.
