My background in hospitality, both in Illinois and Arizona, has provided me with several great experiences. I have had the privilege of working with many charitable organizations on various events from Beer and Bacon Festivals giving back to local fire department charities to Vintage Fashion Shows supporting Breast Cancer Research as well as community events ranging from Fourth of July Festivals to Governor Easter Egg Rolls. I look forward to applying my creativity and work experience to the private events held here at Rolling Green!
Outside of the Club I enjoy traveling (checking off my bucket list items), watching my son’s hockey games, craft projects with my daughter, spending time with family, date nights with my husband, and planning events for family and friends.
I was drawn to Rolling Green to be a part in building its image and relationship with the community, their recently renovated private event space, the family-friendly environment, and the great team it has in place. I’m proud to be a part of everything Rolling Green!
Role: Head Golf Professional
Serving Since: 1980
Phone Number: 847.253.5055
I am very excited to be the Head Golf Professional at Rolling Green Country Club! I grew up in Tinley Park, IL and caddied at Ravisloe Country Club in Homewood, IL. After graduating from Illinois State in 1979, I joined the team at Rolling Green under former Head Professional Bill Ventresca. I became the Head Professional in 1991 and I am proud to still be here today.
Outside of the club, I enjoy golf and spending time with my wife Marie. I have served 6 years on the Illinois PGA Board of Directors and have been serving on the Finance Committee for many years as well. I was awarded the IPGA Senior Masters Honor in 2013.
One of my fondest memories at Rolling Green was also the day I scored my lowest 18 hole score here at the Club. It was Ladies “Beat the Pro” day and I scored 66. Don’t worry, I did apologize to the Ladies League!
Role: Golf Course Superintendent
Serving Since: 1974
I first came to RGCC in 1974 as a "B" caddie, without a doubt the worst caddie in the long history of RGCC. Based on my stellar performance as a caddie, then superintendent, Bob Kronn hired me for the grounds crew in 1978. I worked at RGCC on the grounds crew during the summer while I was attending college. Four weeks before I graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in secondary education I decided I did not want to be a teacher. I returned for yet another summer and Bob told me he would not take me back to just be a member of the crew, but if I wanted to go to school to get a turf degree he would take me back, the rest is history.
I enrolled at Harper College in the Turf Management Program where I not only got my career started but also met my wife Laura. We have been married for 27 years and have two children, Josh (23), a turf student at SIU, many of you know him from his 5 years working for me, and Nikki (19), a student at MCCC.
After several years away and several courses worked for, I returned as Superintendent to Rolling Green in January of 2005 and have been here and happy ever since.
