Industry Veteran Appointed Longaberger Golf Club General Manager
(NASHPORT, Ohio) – The Longaberger Golf Club today announces the appointment of Jeffrey Parsons to General Manager. Parsons takes the reins at the award-winning course that was recently named No. 4 in GolfWorld magazine’s inaugural “Readers’ Choice Rankings” in the category “Top 50 Public Courses” and one of Golf Digest magazine’s “America’s Greatest Public Golf Courses 2009-10.”
An Ohio native, Parsons – a 25-year veteran of club management and the golf industry – has held lead positions at revered Muirfield Village (Dublin, OH), Grand Cypress Golf Club and ChampionsGate Golf Resort (both in Orlando, FL). He was also Tournament Director for the Bobby Rahal Columbus Charities Pro-Am.
“It is with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of a professional with Jeff’s expansive and diverse experience,” says Joseph Livingood, Senior Vice President of Billy Casper Golf, which manages Longaberger Golf Club. “The wealth of knowledge Jeff brings to this position and his extensive ties within the state of Ohio will serve him very well as he heads this remarkable golf club.”
Longaberger Golf Club winds through the rolling hills of central Ohio and panoramic sightlines highlight the immaculate playing conditions. With five sets of tees, the 7,243-yard layout challenges the lowest handicapper, while shrinking to manageable distance to accommodate each and every skill level. A 25-acre natural grass driving range and practice facility with target greens and a chipping, pitching and bunker area further caters to the golfers’ experience.
Longaberger Golf Club, which opened in 1999 and has collected national and international acclaim, ranks No. 57 in the United States (out of roughly 13,500 public-access courses) in GOLF Magazine’s 2008-09 “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” list, while Golfweek Magazine rated the course No. 1 in Ohio in its recent 2009 state-by-state rankings.
