After 15 years as a retail Wall Street stockbroker I entered the hospitality business in 1998. During my 20 years I have been a General Manager for Crown Plaza and Full Service Holiday Inn hotels. I progressed through the private country club business, starting with the Cherokee Town & Country Club, Reynolds Lake Oconee, (Home of the Big Break Celebrity Golf on the Golf Channel), Greystone Golf & Country Club (Regions Tradition, A PGA Tour Champions Major Event) and The Governors Town Club. I am excited to be part of the Eagle’s Landing community.

He brings his experiences working at Reynolds Lake Oconee, TCP Sugarloaf, Cherokee Town & Country Club, and Ansley Golf Club to lead our program.
According to Wes Forester, director of golf at Reynolds’ Lake Oconee “Somebody would say, ‘Wes, good to see you. But where’s Rashad?’ He has an engaging personality, great smile, and he’s driven,” Forester says. “It’s amazing how he’s been able to advance in the GSCAA side and the PGA side and keep certifications in both. That takes a lot of education.”

ClubCorp Industry History:
I originally hail from Lawrence, Massachusetts and have been an avid tennis player since the age of 13. Tennis and golf were mainly summer pastimes with baseball being my major focus including playing first base and pitcher for Victor Valley College in California. Moving to Florida during the tennis boom of the 1970, I began teaching tennis as the contract pro for the cities of Palm Bay and Cape Canaveral until I was hired by ClubCorp as the first Tennis Director at La Cita Country Club in Titusville, Florida in 1985. I have also worked at Ipswich Country Club in Massachusetts in 2001. Eagle’s Landing has been my home since 2002.
