I am pleased to announce that Ricci Agnew, who many of you will know from his work as a Course Marshal over the past year, is joining our sales yeam. He will be able to assist you with any questions you may have and I am certain that his enthusiasm for the Club will make him a superb addition to the golf team at Warley Park.
As a result, we now have an opportunity for somebody to join our team as a Course Marshal. Benefits include flexible hours, a relaxed working environment and free golf.
Marshal duties include:
- Respond to golfers’ questions, requests, concerns.
- Direct golfers around the course if they are unfamiliar with the layout.
- Inform golfers about course policies, and let a golfer know when he might be in violation of a course policy.
- If the opportunity arises, help golfers search for lost balls (or gently suggest they give up the search to keep the pace of play going).
- Try to mediate any disputes that might arise between groups.
- Look for opportunities to care for the course, maybe by repairing a ball mark or filling a divot.
- Keep the course clean and tidy.
Most important of all, look for ways to help the pace of play and have a passion for golf.
Drinks buggy operative: We are also be looking to employ someone to operate the drinks buggy. Once again this would suit somebody who has a passion for sales, loves being outdoors (no matter what the weather) and loves golf. This once again has the benefit of flexible hours, although weekend work is a must. Good pay and the chance to earn tips.
Training will be provided for both roles, this is a fantastic opportunity to join our team.
If you or anybody that you may know would suit either of these roles please contact [email protected]
Club Welfare Officer: In addition, we are actively seeking a volunteer to take on the role of Welfare Officer here at Warley Park.
The main aim of the role is to safeguard the welfare of children at the Club. The person has primary responsibility for managing and reporting concerns about children and for putting in place procedures to safeguard children at the Club.

- Able to work with a team to ensure that golf is a fun, enjoyable and safe experience for all.
- Passionate about creating an environment that enables children and young people to thrive at the golf club.

- Friendly, approachable and enthusiastic.

- An ability to maintain records.
- Caring and compassionate.
