Honours Golf Welcomes Chad Robinson as Golf Course Superintendent of Cider Ridge Golf Club in Oxford, AL

Birmingham, AL – June 9, 2010 – Honours Golf Company is pleased to announce the arrival of Chad Robinson as golf course superintendent of Cider Ridge Golf Club in Oxford, Alabama. Honours Golf was recently selected by the city of Oxford to manage the 18-hole facility.

Robinson, a graduate of North Georgia Technical College and certified member of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, brings with him an array of knowledge and experience in turf care management. Robinson’s most recent position came as the assistant golf course superintendent for Sky Valley Resort & Country Club, an 18-hole championship facility located in Sky Valley, Georgia. While serving at Sky Valley, Robinson successfully completed an 18-hole course re-construction project, which brought the course to current United States Golf Association (USGA) specifications. This experience will aid in the upcoming course renovation of Cider Ridge Golf Club. Prior to his position at Sky Valley, Robinson served as assistant golf course superintendent of Apple Mountain Golf course, an 18-hole facility located in Clarksville, Georgia.

“Chad will be a valuable addition to the Honours Golf family,” stated Honours Golf Chief Executive Officer, Bob Barrett. “His knowledge and experience will prove to be beneficial in our upcoming restoration of Cider Ridge Golf Club.”

In his new role Robinson will manage all projects related to the maintenance and restoration of the golf course; direct the function, operations and personnel of the turf care department; and establish priorities of equipment repair and maintenance programs. Robinson will also be responsible for upholding Honours’ turf care standards and providing exceptional playing conditions on the golf course.

Cider Ridge Golf Club features a mountain-style golf course set within a 450-home golf community in Oxford, Alabama.  Rolling, tree-lined fairways, dramatic elevation changes, and numerous water features come into play throughout the 18-hole layout.  The Club, situated at the base of the state’s tallest mountain – Mt. Cheaha, was built on the grounds of an old apple orchard and takes its name from the history of the property. A century old rock reservoir and remnants of an old grist, saw and gin mill are still visible on the property, as well.  For more information call (256) 831-2739 or visit www.ciderridgegolf.com
