Thriving contemporary private club with an engaged and active membership is seeking a leader for the long-term. This club has a rich history, dedicated board, and loyal staff. We are looking for that special professional who will work with the board to take the club to even greater heights of success.

The right candidate for this position will set the tone for a positive workplace culture, respectfully guiding the staff to higher and higher levels of excellence. To that end, the General Manager must possess a comprehension of all the different facets of club operations: amenities, facilities, grounds, food and beverage, banquets, special events, and outings. The dignified setting of this club makes it an ideal venue for weddings, and members host many special occasions at the club.

The number one goal of the General Manager is to deliver superior service to the members so the General Manager must be a hands-on leader, while also balancing the administrative demands of the position including but not limited to the following: budgeting, management of costs and expenses, membership growth and retention, internal and external marketing, functional  human resources management, accounting and finance. As the club's revenue steadily grows, the General Manager is charged with stewarding the club to maximum profitability but never to the detriment of member satisfaction or employee morale.

We are seeking candidates who have at least five years of management experience in thriving private clubs. While experience as a General Manager is preferred, club managers ready for their first GM post are welcome to confidentially apply. The compensation package includes a competitive base salary, generous bonus incentive, insurance (healthcare, dental, vision, disability, and life), paid vacation, and 401(K) with club matching. Distance candidates welcome to apply. Four-year degree and/or CCM designation preferred but not required. EOE
