Queenstown Golf Club is looking for a new boss after the resignation of chief executive Michael Shattock.
Shattock managed the Queenstown club and its Kelvin Heights and Frankton courses for four years.
“I just wanted to pursue other interests I have, no more or less than that,” Shattock says.
“I’ve achieved what I wanted to when I took the role on. It has been a fantastic year this year for the club, both financially and how the [Kelvin Heights] course looks.
“We had record green fees and we’re in a great financial position with probably the best results for a decade. The course has never looked better and everyone who comes here raves about it.”
Shattock was instrumental in ensuring Frankton’s under-siege nine-holer beside Queenstown Airport is retained until an alternative area is found.
The Queenstown Golf Club board of management wants a candidate with a passion for golf, high level of business acumen, marketing skills and ability to lead the staff of 20.
“I’m sure the quality of the candidates for the job is going to be pretty high. I’m running my contract through until the end of the year. I’ve got a few ideas in the pipeline but there’s no rush.”
