Job Posting for Facilities Manager at Sand Valley

Property Description:

Sand Valley is the latest golf venture to be developed by the Keiser family under the umbrella of Dream Golf Resorts.  Much like the other Keiser properties Bandon Dunes and Cabot Links, Sand Valley is a high-profile, one-of-a-kind destination on its way to becoming one of the most notable golf locations in America.

Located in central Wisconsin, 90 minutes north of Madison in the town of Rome, Sand Valley is situated among 1.75 million acres of prehistoric lake bottom in the sand barren region of the state.  The development currently covers 9000 acres of previously wooded timber land, which is being resorted to its natural dunes land state.  Sand Valley opened its first course and 50 overnight rooms in 2017, followed by the opening of the second golf course in 2018, Mammoth Dunes by David Kidd, and the Sandbox, a 17-hole short course by Coore & Crenshaw. In addition to three award winning golf courses, the resort entails: 118 rooms of over-night accommodations, two intimate housing developments, food and beverage outlets, an indoor fitness center, hiking trails, grass tennis courts and other outdoor activities.

The focus at Sand Valley is one of uncompromising quality in every aspect.  From course layout and condition, to food and beverage offerings, to every detail in the golf operation and overnight rooms, this project will sustain the culture and reputation of unparalleled customer service and memorable guest experiences.
