General Manager/COO

About the Club
Located among one of the highest points in the Denver Metro area, a quick drive to Downtown Denver or the Amazing Rocky Mountains, Pinehurst Country Club opened its doors in Southwest Denver in 1958. Since then, the Club has provided decades of private club membership with unequaled amenities. Pinehurst has built a rich heritage with multi-generational members and a family-welcoming environment. Life at Pinehurst Country Club is about friendships, families, personalized service, and relaxation creating a “resort” like atmosphere. The breathtaking beauty of the club is framed by the Rocky Mountains on the west and the Denver skyline to the northeast.

The 200-acre property features an 18-hole golf course designed by Press Maxwell, as well as a 9-hole golf course designed by Marion Pfluger, creating a unique 27 hole member golf experience. The Maxwell 18 at Pinehurst, one of Mr. Maxwell’s finest works, provides a memorable outing for golfers of all skill levels while providing a constant challenge to those more serious about the game. The Pfluger 9 is challenging, yet playable for golfers of all skill levels. The 7 acres of practice facilities include an expansive driving range and beautifully manicured chipping and putting green areas. Year-round members can use the ultra–HD Golf Simulator to keep their game sharp during the off-season.

With twelve outdoor tennis courts, including two clay courts, along with four indoor courts at the Tennis Pavilion, Pinehurst Country Club provides the most active year-round tennis program in the state of Colorado. The Club has USTA teams, league play, clinics, classes, and programs for every member of any age. The club also features four new pickleball courts providing a state-of-the-art racket facility. Within the confines of the indoor tennis facility, you will find a state-of-the-art fitness center with a full range of training and cardio equipment. The swimming pool provides aesthetic beauty to the Clubhouse, with its unique large grass areas, beautiful trees, fantastic views, and unique high diving board. An active junior swim program allows members to watch the swim and dive team practice and compete while enjoying the spacious patio in the summer. The Clubhouse also features many distinct and unique dining areas for adults and families.

Pinehurst Country Club embodies the culture and spirit of Denver. The Club is unpretentious, and appropriately casual where you will be greeted by your first name. Members enjoy an active year-round lifestyle that takes full advantage of the mile-high setting with an exclusive resort feel. Gross revenue exceeds $12 million with annual dues at almost $6 million and Food & Beverage accounting for $3.4 million. There are 250 staff members at the height of the season.
