Vegetation Assistant


The Metropolitan Golf Club


Oakleigh South, Melbourne, Victoria

The Metropolitan Golf Club, one of the premier Clubs in Australia and located on Victoria's famed Sandbelt, is looking for a Vegetation Assistant to join their golf course maintenance team. 

The host of the 2018 World Cup and many major golf tournaments, including seven Australian Open’s, this outstanding tournament venue, with a contemporary $16 million Clubhouse, provides a modern, progressive and interesting environment to learn and work.

Established in 1901, the Club has a proud and long history and is excited about future capital projects that will see a further enhancement of its golf course. Works have already commenced, and will continue for the next 3-5 years, while the team continues to maintain the turf quality that has long been regarded as the benchmark in Australia.

You will be required to complete or be completing an apprenticeship in Conservation and Land Management where you will be trained in all aspects of this role, under the supervision of the Vegetation Manager. Responsibilities will include all maintenance duties that are required to maintain a 18 hole golf course to a high quality standard (including but not limited to planting, weeding and general maintenance in garden and plantation areas of the golf course.)

Applications should have an interest in indigenous land management, reliable with a good work ethic, have the ability to work in a team environment.
