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
