HUNTERSVILLE, NC (Skybrook Golf Club) — On behalf of the entire ownership group, we want to take this opportunity to inform all of you that we have completed the search and interview process for the new General Manager/Director of Golf at Skybrook Golf Club.
It is with great pleasure to announce that we have selected Matt Hill to serve as our new GM/Director of Golf. Matt’s official start date is set for Monday, December 14th. He is excited to meet each and everyone one of you quickly as he begins his new role.
Matthew “Matt” Hill was born and raised in a rural part of North Alabama. At the age of sixteen, he moved to Bradenton, FL to attend IMG Academy and complete his final two years of schooling while focusing on his passion for golf. During Matt’s senior year of high school, he turned professional and began to travel across the United States to compete in many professional golf events and tours. Competing professionally was a considerable accomplishment but ultimately Matt realized club operations was where he wanted to focus his passion.
Matt is a highly skilled manager with a keen ability to exceed industry standards in operations, member hospitality, food & beverage and public relations. Matt’s passion and expertise in club operations as well as his wonderful personality was apparent during our interview process. His core strengths include developing and implementing high service and organization standards for all areas of club operations. Specifically, Matt is a wonderful communicator with a true love for staff training, membership development, member event programming and creating a first-class home away from home for our members.
Matt is married to his wife, Natasha and together they have two Labrador Retrievers named Bo and Dixie. Matt is a Class A member of the PGA of America. He is also pursuing his membership in the Club Managers Association of America. Most recently, he has served as General Manager at The Club at River Wilderness in Parrish, Florida. He also served as Director of Golf, Head Golf Professional and Director of Instruction for Waterlefe Golf and River Club in Bradenton, Florida. Timing could not have been better as Matt was in the process of relocating to Charlotte to be closer to his aging parents who live in Boone.
We are fortunate to have a professional like Matt on our team and we look forward to him becoming an integral part of your Skybrook experience. Under normal circumstances, we would invite the membership to attend a meet and greet to get to know Matt a little better. We will plan such an event in the future when we are able to gather safely at the clubhouse. In the meantime, feel free to drop by and introduce yourself when you are at the Club next.
It was important for us to make the best possible choice for our day-to-day leader of the club. We are excited for Matt to join our team and are positive that all of you will enjoy him as much as we did during this interview and selection process. Matt’s knowledge, experience and energy will be at the forefront as he works passionately to achieve our goal for Skybrook of being “Best in Class” and a wonderful place for you to call home.
Please join us in welcoming Matt to the Skybrook Team!
