Director of Golf Course & Grounds Maintenance
Jon Snider is the only Director of Golf Course and Grounds Maintenance in Miramont’s history, first joining the staff in June 2001. Snider played an instrumental role in the earliest development phases of Miramont’s Robert Trent Jones II-designed golf course, which in 2015 was ranked by Golf Digest as the seventh-best golf venue in the Lone Star State. Today, Snider oversees a staff of roughly 50 to 60 employees who care for and maintain all the plant life and grounds at Miramont and Momentum Plaza.
Snider, who was raised northwest of Waco in Clifton, Texas, first started working on a nine-hole golf course when he was 16. He began his college career at Tarleton State and later graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in agronomy and a turf grass management option in December 1991. His professional career started in Glen Rose, where he was an assistant superintendent at what was then a new golf course called Squaw Valley. A little more than two years later, he left to become the superintendent at The Cliffs Resort at Possum Kingdom Lake from 1994-96. He also held a similar role at Texas Star in Euless from 1996-2001 before returning to the Bryan-College Station area to help start Miramont.
Snider and his wife, Martha, were married in December 1989. They have two grown daughters, Sadie and Megan. The Sniders also have one granddaughter, Rylee Grace, who was born in 2013.
