General Manager Opportunity
Tchefuncta Country Club
The Tchefuncta Country
Club in Covington, Louisiana, a member-owned, full-service private country club
established over half a century ago, has an immediate opening for an
enthusiastic and accomplished General Manager.
The Club, located in an
upscale gated community just north of Lake Ponchartrain about a half-hour's
drive from downtown New Orleans, offers its members 18 holes of meticulously
manicured championship golf (supported by a large putting green practice area,
complete driving range, and recently constructed state-of-the-art indoor
instructional facility), 6 tennis courts that feature Nova Cushion technology,
a completely remodeled and heated six-lane swimming pool, and a 24/7 secure
card access fitness center. The recently constructed 25,000 square-foot
clubhouse, offering an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere throughout, features
several gracious yet relaxed dining rooms and multiple banquet spaces for
special member and private events.
Presently there are
approximately 420 dues-paying members in all categories contributing to an
annual gross operating income of approximately $3.2 million dollars. Annual
Food and beverage sales are approximately $700,000.
The General Manager
reports directly to the Club President and is responsible for all club
activities. The ideal candidate will be a leader who possesses the energy,
desire and ability to appropriately interact in a professional and friendly
manner with the members of the Club, their guests and the staff. He/she will be
genuinely people-oriented, highly “visible”, and readily accessible and
responsive to the membership. The chosen candidate will also have excellent
service, food and beverage, membership and banquet “marketing”, financial/cost
control, organizational and human resource skills. The ability to successfully
handle multiple responsibilities with meticulous attention to detail and
demonstrated “follow through” is essential. The club currently has a number of
excellent, long-tenured employees in place who can and will help make the
management transition a smooth one.
Salary and benefits are
commensurate with the position and club location, as well as the selected
candidate’s demonstrated professional abilities and experience.
