Just after the New Year, we added vital members to our team. John Lermond (pictured below) was hired as our Equipment Manager. Johnny has an extensive background in golf course mechanics and Members may recognize John from his previous role at the Golf Shop in 2011.
John has hit the ground running getting all necessary equipment needs finalized for the start of the season and also has implemented new maintenance regimens.
Johnny began as an Assistant Mechanic at Wilmington Country Club, which lead to Head Mechanic positions at Atlantic City Country Club, Fieldstone Golf Club, White Clay Creek Country Club and most recently at Rock Manor Golf Course. John’s ability to operate all golf machinery, coupled with being an avid golfer, makes him the ideal individual to maintain the Club’s fleet of equipment.
We have also hired Charles Lonergan as our Assistant-in-Training. Charlie (pictured below) is a December graduate from Rutgers University turf management program. Charlie has worked at the Hyannisport Club (a Donald Ross design) in Cape Cod, Massachusetts for the last two years. In addition to his golf experience, Charlie will bring depth to our team with a vast knowledge of tree climbing; carpentry and general contracting; as well as, mechanical experience working on tug boat engines.
Charlie will join our team in late February after his stint as a volunteer on the grounds staff at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
