He has held numerous leadership roles in the golf industry over the past 30 years, including co-CEO at American Golf Corp., general manager of Nike Golf, president of PGA TOUR Golf Course Properties Tournament Players Clubs, president of PGA TOUR Championship Management, and executive vice president of PGA TOUR Tournament Business Affairs.

Cathy Harbin, president of OnCourse Operations, also is the owner of Pine Ridge Golf Course. She has held a Class A PGA of America membership since 1992 and PGA Master Professional status since 2000. She also is a member of the LPGA and CMAA. In addition to 20 years of experience in golf course operations, she served as executive director of Golf 20/20, and lead the successful launch of Get Golf Ready, and served as vice president of Public Golf, Golf Academy and Programming for ClubCorp. This excellence in golf leadership led her to be named by Golf Inc. magazine as one of the Most Admired Golf Course Operators, Golf News magazine as Woman of the Year, and United Athletes Foundation as Athlete of the Year.
