Join the team

Dainton Park is growing. In 1993 we opened an 18-hole golf course, with a small clubhouse kitchen serving bar snacks. In 2005 we added The Oak Room Restaurant, which now also caters for general public, private functions, weddings and gala dinners. At the same tme we built a gym, with a separate membership, and subsequently we have added a dedicated business/conference suite.

The club has built a loyal customer base and a solid reputation in the local community. We have a fantastic team of green keepers, golf professionals, catering staff, personal training instructors and office workers, who all treat the business as their own. Let us know if any of these opportunities interest you, and if you have the appropriate skills.
