Argyle is seeking a motivated, hands-on, individual to maintain its equipment fleet with a strong emphasis on quality of cut and attention to detail. This position will report directly to the Director of Greens & Grounds. Candidates must have exceptional organizational skills and maintain a clean and orderly work space. The 3 bay shop with golf lift and table lift has the potential to be a fantastic facility and the Equipment Manager will be able to organize it as they see fit. Our mowing fleet consists of a mix of Toro, John Deere, and Jacobsen equipment that is mostly leased. The Equipment Manager will have a large degree of input in making decisions to replace equipment coming off lease in Spring 2022 and will work with the Director to develop long term equipment purchase and replacement plans. The Club is making a commitment to improving the quality of the equipment by recently purchasing several pieces of capital equipment including new Foley 672 Bedknife Grinder and Foley 633 ACCU-PRO expected to arrive in June. This position would be a perfect opportunity for an assistant mechanic to take the next step in their career.
