Glynhir News

Glynhir Golf Club is situated near Ammanford in Carmarthenshire within 5 miles of the western extremity of the M4. Due to our current caterers leaving the business we are looking to recruit a talented catering team to satisfy the needs of the club’s members and to provide attractive dining and function options for the wider community. The internal needs will provide the foundation of a sound business as you provide approximately a 1000 post-match meals in a year and cater for club and visiting golfers and their families. There is currently a highly successful Sunday lunch take-away trade where average numbers are in excess of 150 per week. This can revert to a eat in carvery operation as soon as conditions allow. You will have the opportunity to provide catering for a wide range of functions including but not limited to Christmas parties, cabaret evenings, birthday parties, weddings and wakes. We would also be keen to see the development of general weekday and weekend lunch and evening dining options open to all as Glynhir’s ethos is to welcome the wider community whenever possible.



Our first - floor restaurant can accommodate 80 covers with our downstairs conservatory accommodating up to 26 covers making it perfect for smaller parties and more casual dining



Your team will need to include a “talented chef/cook” who is used to coping with the demands of producing volume meals and of producing interesting and tasty dishes for casual diners. The chef and the broader team will of course need to provide the necessary levels of food hygiene certification, currently our premises food hygiene rating is 5.

Financial arrangements can be highly negotiable and tailored to meet the specific needs of the club and the incoming team. Whilst ability, talent commitment to hard work will be essential substantial financial reserves will not be necessary to enable someone to take up this opportunity making it perhaps accessible to younger talented chefs/cooks looking to run their own business for the first time. It may well suit family teams. On site 4 bedroom accommodation can be provided as part of the arrangement. Running the club’s bar can also be included in the business for the right team.

To discuss this opportunity why not call our Manager Robert Edwards on 01269 851365 option1, if no answer please leave a message and he will get back to you) or alternatively forward a cv and letter of application to This email address is being protected from spambots.

It is with regret that we announce that our current catering team led by Wayne Benger, have tendered their resignation from the catering contract at the Club. Despite having great success, particularly with Sunday Lunches, Wayne has decided that with both he and his wife Emma working full time as well, the demands were just too much to provide a good work/life balance. They will stay on for a 3 month notice period and will continue to run their popular Sunday lunch take away service, during which time we will search for a new catering team. Due to the nature of their departure, they are also very willing and able to work with any new team initially to help preserve the existing excellent customer base.

We thank the whole team for the excellent service they have provided the club during their tenure.

Best regards

Dai Harry
Chairman
