My name is Charles E. Fort III and I am a Regional Director of Agronomy for ClubCorp and the Director of Agronomy for Oak Pointe. I have been very fortunate to have worked here at Oak Pointe since 2002.
After growing up in Indiana and attending Purdue University I worked as an assistant superintendent in Chicago for three years. I moved back to Indiana to take my first superintendent’s job at the Country Club of Terre Haute in 1995. After five years, I decided to move to Michigan and work at Oak Pointe.
While working here at Oak Pointe I met my wife Colleen Currey, who has blessed me with two great kids, Jordan and Brooklynn. After overseeing the renovation to the Championship Course, I then decided to pursue a regional position with the company.
In 2008, I was promoted to Regional Director of Agronomy where I oversee the agronomics for eight ClubCorp properties. We have a great property here and I am very lucky to work at a great facility and will continue to do my best for the membership.

James first started in the Food Industry at the age of 11yrs old, working at a local Metro Detroit Ice Arena Concession stand, where he was definitely eating more of the profit than he was selling.
James would say his first true culinary debut and what would be known as the start of his culinary career path was when he walked into Rocky's Of Northville, at 17yrs old, and was hired right there on the spot. He started as a Sauté Cook on a busy Friday Night!! From that point forward he was hooked. His first experience in a country club setting was for Meadowbrook Country Club as a Catering Cook. From there he went on to numerous restaurants and clubs around the Detroit area including Italian Epicure, Bacco Ristorante, Compass Group North American Detroit, The Fairlane Club, Roadside B&G, Beverley Hills Grill, The Meeting House, and Gordon Biersch Brewery.
James has a real passion for creating experiences through culinary creations.
