Overview Lewiston Golf & Country Club (LGCC) is accepting applications for a Golf Course Superintendent. We're located in the Lewis Clark Valley, which is known as a banana belt with year-round golf as we seldom miss a day on the course! Lewiston Golf and Country Club is a premier golf course, and we love golf in Idaho. With a slope rating of 125 and 6,728 yds in total length and yardages ranging from 5,365 to 6,591, the course at LGCC provides a challenge for all golfers. Designed by Robert Baldock in 1974, this remarkable and unique course features amazing views of the Snake River and nearby mountains. Along with great views come great conditions, LGCC is known to have the best greens in the LC Valley. Each hole has been designed to challenge the strategy of the expert golfer, at the same time, with 4 tees to choose from it keeps from intimidating the beginner. It is a hard decision determining which hole is our signature hole. Hole #4 has a beautiful drop across water to a par 3 with bunkers protecting the front and left, a narrow green and a rock wall on the back. Hole #11 challenges the long ball hitters and the decision to layup before the canyon or go for it is often debated. Many golfers will stop to take a group selfie overlooking the Snake River on this green. Hole #16 challenges your ability to accurately place your tee shot to this downhill par 3 protected front and back with bunkers and a narrow shot between rocky ridges where often you will decide to just leave your ball there. We think the course is lots of fun and very challenging all year long.
