Jeff Hanson has been appointed director of golf at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, a AAA Five-Diamond Resort that features 36-holes of award-winning golf. Hanson comes to the resort from Red Sky Golf Club in Vail, Colo., where he was director of golf.
“Jeff possesses a great passion for the game of golf and is a tremendous addition to the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club team,” said Michael Gordon, vice president and general manager of Ponte Vedra Inn & Club. “He brings a wealth of experience with some of the most renowned country clubs in the United States and will help us continue to advance and improve our already stellar golf operations.”
A skilled player who was captain of his collegiate golf team at the University of Wyoming, Hanson began his career as head professional at Glenmoor Country Club before becoming assistant professional at Cherry Hills Country Club, one of the country’s top-ranked clubs. He then was head professional at Beaver Creek Country Club before becoming director of golf at Red Sky Golf Club.
“I am excited about the opportunity to be a part of such a prestigious resort at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club,” said Hanson, who has been a PGA of America professional since 2001. “It is especially rewarding to come here during a time when the newly renovated Ocean Course has reopened to such positive reviews.”
As director of golf, Hanson will oversee Ponte Vedra Inn & Club’s entire golf operations including the resort’s Ocean and Lagoon courses, as well as at the recently upgraded practice facilities.
