Golf director position on hold

April 22, 1997

Two Washington County Commissioners said Monday that a proposal to hire a golf director for the county's Black Rock Golf Course is dead for now.

"That's not going to be considered," said Commissioners Vice President John S. Shank.

Commissioner R. Lee Downey said the golf course wasn't profitable enough to have another high-paying position. The golf director would have been paid up to $75,000 annually.

Shank and Downey have been working with the golf advisory board on a reorganization of the golf course's employees and procedures. Shank said a report would be issued in about two weeks, but it won't have an impact on the golf course budget.

Washington County Administrator Rodney Shoop had presented a reorganization plan for the county-owned course calling for the creation of a golf director's position with an estimated annual salary of $50,000 to $75,000.

The director would be a PGA pro who would attract money-making tournaments to Black Rock and promote the course, Shoop said.

Black Rock has a golf superintendent who maintains the course, a pro shop manager and a restaurant manager.
