Thanks and Respect

Clearing Greens of Slush
“Respect is earned not given" is one of the oldest management sayings.

After nine years with the Greywolf Golf Course, Chad Thomlinson has decided to leave for another opportunity.  He will be taking over as General Manger and Director of Golf at the Highwood Golf Club, in High River Alberta.  Chad spent nine years at Greywolf, one as Associate Professional and five as Head Professional.  In 2009, Chad earned the position of Director of Golf.

Chad’s met the challenges that Greywolf presents head on.  He did this while supporting his team of managers, supervisors, and staff.  He fostered an environment where staff shared ideas, celebrated success, and resolved problems as a team.  There was no job that Chad would not do, whether it was working on the grease trap or constructing a float for a parade.  He worked with and alongside the staff.   I personally will not forget the support Chad gave me when there were challenges with our greens in 2009.  He earned my respect then and continued to earn it every day we worked together.
