Phone Number: 720.330.7126

David began is career in 1994 golf while working various jobs at a local golf course while attending the University of Nebraska. His passion for the game led him to Houston Texas to further his experience and expand his knowledge.  

David moved to Denver in 1998 and since then has been involved in clubs such as Valley County Club, Fossil Trace Golf Club, CommonGround Golf Course, Aspen Golf Club and now with Club Corp Colorado.  He leads with direction and with reasonable thought.  He believes in exceeding the member experience, and understands the finer details of doing what's equitable for the membership as a whole.  He listens to understand, rather than listening to respond.  His passion and competitive self is seen on the golf course as well as his office.  He's been well trained and has been involved with opening and re-organizing operations stretching from Mexico, to Amelia Island, FL, to Aspen, Co and now back to Denver, Co.  

His wife Lauren, and his daughter Alister (yes, named after the great golf course architect Dr. Alister Mackenzie) love being in Colorado, and try to spend as much time enjoying the outdoors and spending time with their friends and family.  He's here to be a leader and your General Manager.
