As General Manager of Old American Golf Club, Mike oversees all club operations including revenue management; golf; food and beverage; sales; marketing and agronomy for an award winning, nationally-ranked member/resort course in North Texas. Mike has been instrumental in expansion of the facility since his arrival, overseeing the creation of a golf shop experience, opening a new restaurant, restoring an antique farm barn for use as a cart storage area and developing a practice facility which is home to several PGA TOUR players. Mike's passion for both the game and the Old American Golf Club vision is positioning it in the forefront of golf facilities in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex.
Mike began his career with Tour 18 Dallas where he moved up through the ranks with Arnold Palmer Golf Management. After leaving Tour 18, he was employed by Bridlewood Golf Club where he held the Director of Golf position for nine years. Bridlewood's residential and golf development was the ideal stepping stone for Mike to transition to the growing Tribute community, where he joined the Old American Golf Club as General Manager in the fall of 2011.
