Assistant-in-Training Position

Mission Hills Country Club was built in 1914, elegantly nestled in Mission Hills, Kansas near the famed Country Club Plaza of Kansas City.  The golf course is a traditional parkland style routing with tree lined fairways and strategic bunkering.  Originally designed by Tom Bendelow, the course was remodeled in 2006 by Keith Foster.  The renovation included the construction of tees, fairways, greens and bunkers.  Furthermore, the project involved the installation of a new irrigation system, extensive drainage, cart paths, cart bridges and stabilization of the Brush Creek banks.  The golf course reopened on June 30th, 2007 to an excited and pleased membership.

 The candidate will assist the Golf Course Superintendent and Senior Assistant with the management of daily functions for the operation of the Green Department.  Management of the golf course entails direction as well as the participation in the care of: greens, tees, fairways, bunkers, cart paths, drainage system, irrigation system, driving range, club grounds, maintenance equipment and other areas as deemed necessary by the Superintendent.

  • Completion of two or four year Turf Management degree

 Course Description: 

  • Greens are A1/A4 Bentgrass/Poa Annua
  • Approaches, Fairways, and Tees are Meyer Zoysia
  • ·Rough is Turf-Type Tall Fescue and Poa Annua


  • We are continuing to work off of a Keith Foster master plan, made for the club two years ago.  This entails moving fairway lines, constructing new tees, moving bunkers, and tree removal. 
  • We are aggressively trying to convert our greens back to a pure stand of Bentgrass.  We have a good amount of Poa Annua in our greens, and we are trying to eradicate Poa through chemical and cultural practices.
