Bill Maynard, CGCS, has accepted a position as the director of golf course operations at the Country Club of St. Albans (Mo.), just outside of St. Louis. The 26-year GCSAA member, who had served as the golf course superintendent at Milburn Country Club in Overland Park, Kan., since 1999, replaces the club's longtime head of maintenance, William Ashby, who is retiring.
In a letter to the club's membership, St. Albans' general manager David Derfel said, "In addition to his extensive experience with agronomy and management in the transition zone, Bill's skill set affords him the ability to complement our achievements of the past while introducing opportunities for the future."
Maynard has served on the GCSAA Board of Directors since 2010, and is a current member and past president of the Heart of America GCSA. He's also an active speaker on both the local and national levels, and has served on GCSAA committees every year since 1999. The Country Club of St. Albans is a 36-hole facility that features the Tom Wieskopf/Jay Morrish-designed Lewis and Clark Course as well as the Tavern Creek Course, designed by Mike Hurdzan and Dana Fry.
