Ocean Reef Club has come a long way since it began as a tiny fishing camp more than 50 years ago. It’s now a beautiful, self-contained community located on 2,000 lush tropical acres on the coastline of the Atlantic. Besides the three 18-hole championship golf courses, tennis center, 175-slip marina, and a 900-acre nature preserve, there are twelve fine dining restaurants and lounges. Ocean Reef Club has grown to be one of the largest employers in Monroe County, FL with a year round staff of 600 employees, and hundreds of additional employees during the winter season. In addition to offering competitive wages and excellent benefits, Ocean Reef Club has great advancement opportunities. Here Mark Kirkendall, Director of Human Resources, discusses the benefits of working at the Ocean Reef Club.
