Job description:


Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club is a private members club, with over 1000 members, and is situated only 20 minutes drive from Inverness City Centre. The Golf Club which is the 15th Oldest Recorded Club in the World (1793), invites interested parties/individuals to apply for the franchise agreement, providing and managing the catering service for the club members, guests, private parties, visitors and casual diners.

The club offers a well-equipped kitchen, a bar, dining room and lounge area accommodating in total a seating of 100 people. The clubhouse enjoys panoramic views over the Moray Firth and beyond. As well as golfers and visiting golf parties, there is the opportunity to supply meals to the adjacent caravan parks and the many walkers who dolphin watch at Chanonry Point. Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club is a National Championship venue and we have been voted as Scotland’s Best Golfing Experience as part of the Scottish Golf Tourism Awards for 2017 and 2018. Ranked No. 47 in Scotland and No. 30 in Great Britain & Ireland’s Fun courses to play (with over 2,000 courses in the UK & Ireland).

The position requires the applicant to manage all areas of the catering operation, by providing an exceptional high level of food and service. The franchise also offers many possibilities to increase revenue, through established members parties, social events, private hire, golfing groups and society golf outings.

The applicant has to demonstrate the following:-

• The possession of necessary food preparation and Health & Hygiene certificate’s
• The ability to deliver quality food alongside a customer focused front of house service.
• The ability to work on his/her own initiative and as part of a team.
• Experience in providing a similar type of catering elsewhere.
• Excellent communication skills and the ability to work with other golf club staff.
• A willingness to work alongside Club officials in selection of menus, agreement of opening hours etc.

The Golf Club will provide a fully equipped kitchen and dining area. Overheads are apportioned where appropriate. The successful applicant will be required to sign a service agreement for a period of time to be mutually agreed. For the avoidance of doubt, the applicant will not be an employee of the Club and the responsibility and turnover for the Bar remains with the Club. The Current Franchisee has successfully been in situ for approximately 4 years and turnover figures of this operation will be made available.
