Perth Golf Course hires industry veteran Chris Learmonth as Director of Golf
Perth Golf Course is thrilled to announce the hiring of golf industry veteran Chris Learmonth as its new Director of Golf, effective immediately.
“I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to work with TMSI at Perth next season and meeting all the members and other golfers who play there,” said Learmonth. “I feel after 25 years in the industry wearing a number of different hats, my experience and skill set is ideally suited to the operation at Perth.”
“I’m looking forward to providing members, their guests and the public with a wide selection of merchandise in the golf shop and the utmost in customer service,” he continued. “I also plan to plan to be involved in all club programs and providing a complete program of personal and group lessons.”
Learmonth, who has been a PGA of Canada member for 25 years, has spent the last eight years as the head teaching professional at Deep River Golf Club. Prior to that, Learmonth was the head teaching professional at Elm Ridge Country Club in Montreal, and held the same position at Glengarry Golf Club.
The two-time PGA of Canada Ottawa Zone Player of the Year (2008, 2010) has enjoyed numerous playing achievements, including participating in PGA Tour qualifying school in 1999.
“With the hiring of Chris, we’re expanding our successful operation at Perth and very happy to have someone of his caliber leading the charge,” said Rob Knights, vice-president of golf operations for Thunderbird Management Services Inc. (TMSI), a sports management company from Ottawa.
The 49-year-old Learmonth lives in Laurentian Hills with his wife Lianne. He also has a daughter, Sabrina.
Learmonth will build on the success of James Paterson, who enjoyed a wonderful tenure at Perth, leading Canada’s oldest golf club during its 125th anniversary celebrations in 2015.
Paterson has been hired by eQuinelle Golf Club – a sister property of Perth as both are involved with TMSI – as its Food & Beverage Manager.
“With eQuinelle’s state-of-the-art clubhouse now available for large, special events, it’s great to have an experienced leader like James at the helm of the Food and Beverage aspect of that facility,” continued Knights.
TMSI will once again be involved with Perth Golf Course for the 2016 season and will be announcing the addition of more facilities to its management stable in the coming weeks.
