With a multi-functional Clubhouse situated in one of the most picturesque sites in the Perth metropolitan area, a full male membership with an extensive waiting list and a growing women’s membership, the Club is in an excellent position to continue building upon its proud history as a leader and innovator in golf in Western Australia.

The Club is seeking an experienced and enthusiastic Chief Executive Officer to continue to drive the ongoing success of the Club in line with the strategic directions determined by the Board.

The Chief Executive Officer will be supported by a quality team of managers responsible for the golf course, food and beverage, golf retail and playing operations. The managers will report directly to the Chief Executive Officer.

The Chief Executive Officer’s working week will be predominantly Monday to Friday with weekend and public holiday work only required when major tournaments or special Club events are scheduled.  

The ideal applicant will have a track record demonstrating excellent strategic thinking and ability to implement strategic plans, an ability to lead and inspire senior staff, strong financial and business acumen, strong written and verbal communication skills, attention to detail, experience with capital projects and a focus on the provision of outstanding service to Members.
