Congratulations to our Retirees on 225 Combined Years of Service!

3/18/2013

In February of 2013, seven golf employees retired from our family with 225 years of combined service.  These employees dedicated their entire careers to making golf better for all of us.  We wanted to take time to thank these employees for their commitment to the Metro Parks golf system and to share their story with you.

Fred Bryant retired after 38 years of service.  Fred managed Ted Rhodes Golf Course after long time Pro Joe Hampton retired.  He finished his career at Shelby Golf Course in East Nashville.  Fred’s affection for the game of golf is infectious.  He plans to continue playing and enjoying the game that he loves. 

Marty Goodwin retired after 26 years of service to Metro Parks.  He was a Golf Maintenance and Repair worker at Harpeth Hills Golf Course at the time of his retirement.  He spent most of his years at McCabe Golf Course working to provide McCabe golfers with excellent playing conditions.           

Wayne Hannah retired after 26 years of service to the Parks Department.  He was a Golf Maintenance and Repair worker at Ted Rhodes Golf Course.  Wayne was self-motivated and always had a friendly smile or a kind word for his golfers.

Ronny Sandlin retired from Shelby Golf Course as the Superintendent after spending most of his 34 years at McCabe Golf Course.  Ronny brought great energy to the workplace and always strived to keep his golf course in top notch shape.

Joe Soard retired from McCabe Golf Course as the Superintendent after 33 years of service.  Joe also worked at Ted Rhodes Golf Course during his career.  He was instrumental in bringing a high quality experience to every golfer that visited his facilities. 

William Trotter retired from Two Rivers Golf Course after spending 35 years with Metro Parks.  He worked as a Golf Maintenance Leader at Two Rivers.  Over the years, Mr. Trotter became the go to guy.  If you needed a piece of equipment fixed, Mr. Trotter was your man.

Delilah Tuck retired with 33 years of service to Metro Parks.  She supervised the entire resale program for our municipal golf courses, which included purchasing and receiving all pro shop inventory and selection and pricing for the concessions areas.  Under her leadership, the concessions areas had excellent health department ratings.  She worked hard to make the golfer’s overall experience better at all of our facilities.

We hope that these employees enjoy their retirement and know that we appreciate their dedication, loyalty and service.
