After 30 days, trial memberships can be upgraded to a pro-rated full membership to last the remainder of the year.
“The golf course at the Country Club is inherently a big draw and we’re very excited about how our superintendent, Alex Olson, has groomed this to be one of the best courses in the State of Iowa,” said Donn Carlisle, Grinnell Golf & Country Club’s new general manager. “Outside of the course, our dining options, lounge, pub and pool are all great ways for the entire family to be entertained. Our social events calendar is filling up throughout the summer and now is the time for people who may have not been to the Country Club for awhile to come in, check out the new things we have going on and see for themselves why we’re all looking forward to a great year at the club.”
Donn Carlisle started in March of 2015 as the general manager at Grinnell Golf & Country Club. He was previously the general manager at Bacon Park and Black Creek Golf Courses in Savannah, Georgia and moved back to the Midwest to bring his family closer to his home state of Michigan. Carlisle is a PGA Class A Golf Professional, offering the opportunity to provide high quality lessons to golfers of all ages.
Alex Olson is Grinnell Golf & Country Club’s superintendent who recently won the “2014 9-Hole Golf Course Superintendent of the Year” award sponsored by the Iowa Golf Association. The award recognizes the passion of high standards of golf course maintenance and management demonstrated on a daily basis.
