Cottesloe Golf Club is one of the leading and reputable private golf clubs in Australia. Located in Swanbourne, Western Australia, Cottesloe Golf Club has been in existence since 1908 and has a reputation for excellence in service to Members and guests alike.
Over the past fifteen years the Club has undertaken significant course changes under the guidance of architect Graham Marsh and each change has led to a dramatic improvement in the overall presentation of the Course.
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 Club operates under a modern corporate structure with a single Board rather than a series of committees overseeing the Club’s business and operations. Under the Club’s corporate structure, the Chief Executive Officer will report to the Board and will have autonomy in the management and operation of all key areas of the Club’s business in line with agreed budgets and key performance indicators. Areas of responsibility will include the following:
- Financial Management
- Membership Services
- Golf Course
- Golf Retail and Playing Operations
- Food and Beverage
- Human Resource Management
- Capital Project Management
- Golf Tournament and Sponsorship Co-ordination
- Community and Local Government liaison
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. In addition knowledge of golf and a suitable tertiary qualification in the areas of finance or management are seen as desirable. An attractive remuneration package will be negotiated with the successful applicant dependent on qualifications and experience.
