Assistant Golf Course Superintendent - Tippecanoe C.C.
Job Title: Assistant Superintendent

Job Type: Full-Time

Location: Canfield

Job Status: Sourcing

State: OH

Description: Club History: 

Tippecanoe Country Club opened in 1921 when a small group purchased a nine-hole golf course in Boardman Township. Starting as the "Poland Country Club," members became dissatisfied with a course of only nine holes. On April 26, 1927, members pooled together and purchased more than 185 acres of land to build the eighteen-hole course of today. The course was then designed by arguably the most renowned course architect of all time, Donald Ross. 

Once the eighteen-hole course was completed, officers were elected and a golf pro was hired for the very first time, starting Tippy's journey in becoming the premier country club in the Mahoning Valley. They then formed a corporation, naming it "The Tippecanoe Country Club." 

During the Great Depression, the club was foreclosed on and reopened under control of the bank, bearing the name Southern Hills Country Club. A few years later, a group of Southside merchants purchased the club and restored its name to Tippecanoe Country Club. Then in May of 1953, members finally took ownership of the club by each purchasing a $600 share of stock. 

A fire on March 15, 1983 swept through and completely destroyed Tippy's clubhouse. After much hard work, the facilities were completely rebuilt. These facilities had remained relatively untouched until recently. On August 3, 2020, a group of 70 investors purchased the club - with a member approval vote of 95% - with plans to inject $3 million into renovating the facilities of the club.
