Assistant Head Professional
Country Club in Redding, CT is looking for an Assistant Head Professional. Competitive salary, percentage of lessons, stringing, housing (if needed), lunch and dinner while on duty.

Position Overview:
Small country club in Redding, CT looking for an Assistant Head Professional to assist DOR and staff w/ all facets of instructional, social, recreational and competitive programming. Minimum of one year experience in private club member services and 10U junior initiatives.

In 1965, three local businessmen and good friends, Louis Nazzaro, Russ DiFranco and Nick Nerich, shared a dream: to create “a place of complete enjoyment and relaxation for you and your children, and a place where you will be proud to entertain your guests.” Their vision of a “little club in the country” began to take shape in 1966 when they purchased the Costello farm and created the Country Club Holding Corporation. Only 4 holes were playable at the time, leading to what continues to be a Club tradition: The 4 Hole Open. By 1969, the 9-hole course opened for play. In 1973 a 13-year-old named Bob Tway won the Men’s Club Championship. Thirteen years later, Tway won the 1986 PGA Championship. In 1976, the original Holding Corporation was un-wound and its members purchased The Country Club. As the club membership grew throughout the ’70s, Club hired golf architect Rees Jones (Old Chatham, Pinehurst #7, Torrey Pines 2001 Reconstruction), son of legendary golf course designer Robert Trent Jones, to transform the original 9 holes into a unique and challenging 18-hole layout. Taking advantage of the natural streams and ponds, Jones incorporated precipitous elevation changes to carve out a 6277-yard course that proves the adage, “Don’t judge a course by its length.” The club has 4 Har-Tru tennis courts (two lit for nighttime play), a full service pro shop and tennis patio, a full length 25-yard competition swimming facility and zero entry pool with changing rooms and locker facilities, fenced in playground area w/ direct pool access, full service Poolside Café, clubhouse facility with ballroom, grill room, full service locker room and dining facilities including an outside patio. This is a great opportunity to build a career as a future Head Professional and Director of Tennis in Fairfield County private club management.
