One of golf course management’s most recognized and accomplished figures is looking for greener pastures.
Anthony Williams, CGCS, who has served as the director of grounds at Stone Mountain (Ga.) GC by Marriott for the past 10 years, told GCM on Monday that his position at that facility had been eliminated. Officially, the 19-year GCSAA member is “retiring” on Oct. 16 after 30 years with Marriott Golf in one capacity or another.
“You sometimes wonder how often this is happening in our business and how guys deal with it, but then it happens to you and you have to figure it out,” Williams says. “It was certainly a shock, but once that wore off, I just kind of did what I do. I started making lists, organizing, thinking through some things.
“Even when they say you can’t be a superintendent any more, you can’t stop being a superintendent, I guess.”
