The Landings Club Assistant Golf Professional in Skidaway Island, Georgia
This position is responsible for assisting the Head Golf Professional in coordinating all golf activities at their respective club, and for the enthusiastic engagement of members and guests.
Arthur Hills designed the Palmetto course and it is considered by many to be our most challenging course. Palmetto opened in October of 1985 and was the fourth course on Skidaway Island. In 2005, the course was spruced up with new concrete cart paths, irrigation system and drainage, bunkers, a bulkhead around the 5th green, and an additional set of tees. The first six holes on Palmetto issue the challenge. If you are able to answer, the next nine are a little reprieve, but look out for the 16th, 17th and 18th. The 10th hole has one of the most beautiful oak trees on the island, just to the right of the green. The 13th hole has the gravesite of Mr. Philip Delegal, an early settler of Skidaway Island. Palmetto Clubhouse overlooks the peninsula green of the 18th, surrounded on three sides by a lagoon.
