POSTED ON March 24, 2022 @ 4:17 pm


Pupuke Golf Club is looking to appoint a Head Professional to manage the day-to-day golf operations at Pupuke. The successful candidate will become an integral member of the Pupuke management team and report directly to the General Manager.

Pupuke Golf Club is located on Auckland’s North Shore just 15 minutes from the city centre. Pupuke is one of the most unique and spectacular layouts in New Zealand. Set close to the native bush with strategically placed feature trees, the course winds through the woods on one nine and emerges to the beautiful views of the Hauraki Gulf on the other.

The Club’s facilities include a pro-shop, 200m driving range, two short game areas and a putting green. Our Clubhouse has breathtaking views of Rangitoto and the surrounding nature reserve. The Club has bar, catering, and function facilities available to members and visitors.

The Role

Pupuke is looking for a Head Professional with the suitable experience and drive to take responsibility for the professional and efficient management of Pupuke golf services. The chosen candidate will be responsible for the supervision of the day-to-day operations of the Pro Shop team and providing golf instruction through lessons, clinics, and other agreed programs.

The chosen candidate will be expected to assist in designing and overseeing an innovative tournament schedule and golf activities program. You will play a major role in the implementation of our golf strategy which has focused on developing member and visitor events and operations, building strong schools and ladies’ program and driving membership sign-ups and retention.

The Head Professional will lead a team of pro-shop starters and will work with the Golf Operations and Marketing Manager to have full accountability of the day-to-day golf operations.  You will help develop strategies to maximise revenue generation, tee booking maximisation and customer satisfaction for both member and green fee players. You will contribute to the advancement of golf at Pupuke and will help oversee our development programs for all levels of golf with a particular focus on our Pupuke junior programme.

With a continuous improvement focus, you will review all aspects of golf operations, seeking opportunities to enhance the experience for members, visitors and our corporate guests leading to increased member attraction, retention, and engagement.

You will lead your team to deliver first-rate commercial and customer experience outcomes. The ability to communicate and collaborate well with the Operations and Marketing team, members, guests, and other club employees will be critical to achieving the golf and club objectives.


This is a full-time salaried position that due to the nature of the role will also include some weekend work. The Club is looking for a candidate with experience in golf management and a track record of providing professional, efficient and high-quality service-orientated golf operations.

The role offers a competitive salary based on experience and qualifications. This is an excellent opportunity for the chosen person to make the role their own, advance their personal development and become a key part of Pupuke’s future.
