The Oaks Country Club terminated its relationship with Mike Fields today.  We certainly appreciate Mike’s service and contributions to the Oaks and wish him a bright and successful future.

In addition, John Weatherford has been hired as General Manager.  John will be responsible for all aspects of club management including the clubhouse, food, beverages, special events, and pool service as well as management and maintenance of the golf course.

John graduated from Texas A&M Commerce where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Science and Technology with an emphasis on Grass & Turf Management.  He also obtained a Master’s degree in Counseling.  He has twenty-two years of business experience and facility and event operations and management.  During that time, he managed the University’s Student Center for four years, was Assistant Director of Event Services for one and a half years, Senior Associate Director of Operations and Event Management for two years, and five years ‘experience managing the athletic fields.  His vast experience will be extremely beneficial to The Oaks.

John enjoys community involvement where he has been a member of the Chamber of Commerce, Lions Club Past President, past member of the Commerce City Council, and a Board Member of the Sand Hills Country Club.

He and his family, wife Gwen and son, LBJ, are long time Commerce residents but are excited to make the move to Greenville where they will be active members of The Oaks and the community.

We will host a Welcoming Reception for John and his family starting at 5:00pm Thursday, June 23rd.  Plan now to attend this important event which will include finger food and drinks.

Kindest regards,

Jerry Ransom, President

Oaks Members,

We have been selected as a qualifying site for the Texas State Open. Other than professional tournaments like the Nelson, Colonial and Houston Open, the Texas State Open is highest level of competition in Texas.  It attracts golfers from all over the state and it will put us on the map in Texas Golf.  It also implies a higher standard of care by our maintenance staff and members.

This weekend someone broke a rope and drove through the mud on the second fairway.   Ropes are there for a reason – to allow newly sodded grass to grow.

Please reframe from driving over and breaking ropes; driving through mud and tracking up the golf course (especially when it is “Cart Path Only”); and, throwing cigarette butts and trash (candy wrappers, plastic cups, etc.) on the golf course.

Together we can achieve our goal of “The Best Nine- Hole Golf Course in Texas”.

Thank you,

Jerry Ransom

President, The Oaks CC
