Prescott, AZ (PRWEB) March 9, 2006
From the prestigious fairways of one of Southern California’s famed private clubs comes Talking Rock custom homes’ new golf course superintendent. John Noyes recently joined the Prescott golf properties to manage all maintenance and operations of its Jay Morrish-designed championship course.
Noyes most recently was superintendent of the Sherwood Oaks Country Club, maintaining the course that played host to the annual PGA Tour Target World Challenge Golf Tournament which benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation and is televised nationally. With a degree in horticulture from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, Calif., Noyes has maintained some of the finest golf courses in the country. He started his career at Troon Golf – Legend Trail in Scottsdale as assistant superintendent and stayed with the company for several years, becoming head superintendent at Troon Golf courses in Savannah, Georgia and San Jose, Calif., prior to Sherwood Oaks. The head superintendent opportunity at Talking Rock brings him back to Arizona after 8 years.
“To capture the attention of someone with John’s background is a coup for Talking Rock. We’re very proud of our golf course in Prescott and John will help make it an even more spectacular playing experience for our members,” said Jim Leisenring, director of golf at. Talking Rock. “His experience and expertise will be a great asset to the success of our club and community.”
