“Brad’s reputation and commitment to the highest standards makes him the ideal professional for St. Andrews Country Club,” COO/General Manager Craig D. Martin, C.C.M. said. “After an extensive interview process, Brad was the clear choice to meet and exceed our members’ expectations for both the Fazio II and the Palmer Course.”

“When you have the reputation that St. Andrews Country Club has, of being such a distinguished club, the best of the best, there is never any doubt what the standard is for the property. I’m committed to providing a stellar member experience by highlighting the diversity of the two golf courses which is quite unique. The Fazio II golf course is truly a championship test of golf since the renovation, with a strategic approach to shot making and an emphasis on firm, fast conditioning, while the Palmer golf course offers a more traditional approach to the game in regards to sight lines and Green contouring,” Nelson commented. “My family and I are truly blessed to be a part of the St Andrews culture. I’m excited to share my vision and to lead the Agronomy team to ensure we deliver the goals set forth by Craig and the Board of Governors.”
