Job Descriptiontop

Burlingame Country Club Mission Statement: “Burlingame Country Club is a social club, an oasis of civility and a gracious extension of home that connects its members and their families through sporting and cultural activities.  The Club treasures its history, nurtures its traditions, and values companionship and mutual respect.”

Vision:  The club’s vision is to have staff work together with the Board and committees to increase participation, focus on high quality service and products, maintain the facilities to the best restorative levels possible while being fiscally responsible to the traditions of the Burlingame Country Club.

Facility Information:  Burlingame Country Club is an intimate, very private country club situated in the rolling hills twenty miles south of San Francisco in Northern California.  Established in 1893, it is one of the oldest country clubs in the U.S., and the oldest continuously operated facility west of the Mississippi.  From its beginnings focusing on horse and hunting pursuits popular in the late 1800s, it was the first club in California to offer golf.  The Golf program is a very active country club style with active women’s, juniors, and men’s programming, culminating in a 109-year-old invitational.  With tennis and swimming rounding out its recreational options, Burlingame remains a family-oriented club.  The stately clubhouse had been a former estate of the Crocker family.  Its formal, manicured grounds offer a peaceful park-like setting.  Outside events and business are not allowed.

The golf course features a challenging 6,300 yard, 18-hole par 70 layout. The club opened a brand-new Golf Shop in December of 2020.  The current Head Golf Professional has been at the Club for three years and is only the 8th Golf Professional in the Club’s 128-year history.  The Head Golf Professional has mentored three Assistant Golf Professionals into Head Golf Professional positions and many interns into Assistant Golf Professional positions at top clubs.  Open all year, there are no tee times and the course averages 14,000 rounds annually (18,200 in 2020).  The tree-lined course is considered “walker friendly” and features a caddie program.
