Top 100 Victoria National Hires New General Manager and Head Golf Professional
Dormie Network is pleased to announce new leadership at Victoria National Golf Club: Jon Chapman, PGA, as General Manager and Brad Wilson, PGA, as Head Golf Professional.
“The fundamentals of hospitality and exceptional customer service will be our focus,” said Chapman. “When those key elements are in order, everything else falls into place. I’ve found that sticking to the basics will get you the furthest.”
Chapman brings with him over a decade of experience in golf, leading teams at The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs in New Zealand and Naples Grande Golf Club in Naples, Florida. He joined Dormie Network in 2019 as Head Golf Professional at ArborLinks in Nebraska City, Nebraska, and later that year was promoted to General Manager at Hidden Creek Golf Club in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey.
Wilson has worked at prestigious private golf clubs Stone Eagle in Palm Desert, California; The Country Club of Indianapolis in Indiana; and most recently Sutton Bay in Agar, South Dakota.
“The most important thing I’ve learned in my career was ‘No isn’t in our vocabulary,'” said Wilson. “This is a big opportunity to bring what I’ve learned at other clubs and take it to the next level by creating a consistent experience across the network. I love the challenge and I’m excited to get back to Indiana.”
Victoria National opens four new onsite four-master-suite cottages this spring, for a total of 68 beds across 15 units. The 2022 golf season opens at Victoria National on March 23.
