Meet the Staff
Director of Golf Operations | Employee since 2003
Troy’s favorite front nine hole at River’s Edge is Hole 6 because for a relatively short Par 4, it’s the beginning and ending of another hole along with the waterfall feature. Troy’s favorite back nine hole at River’s Edge is Hole 16 because of the 250 foot drop on this Par 3 makes for a very fun and interesting hole.
Troy’s favorite golf course out of Central Oregon is the Kapalua Plantation Course in Maui.
Troy’s favorite professional golfer is Freddie Couples because “there is something about his ability to not allow external pressures to affect his golf game.”
Troy discovered golf through his father who took him to the course when he was 11 years old.
Troy lives in Bend with his wife Kristi and two children Aubrey and Cameron. In his spare time, he enjoys camping and fishing.
Golf Course Superintendent | Employee since 2019
In addition to his responsibilities at Calabasas Country, Nick was the Vice President of the Board of Directors for the Golf Course Superintendents Association of Southern California and the Chairman of the Board for the California Turfgrass and Landscape Foundation. Prior to his employment at Calabasas Country Club, Nick was the Assistant Superintendent at Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles. Nick has a master’s degree in plant biology from the University of California, Riverside, and a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Western Washington University.
Nick’s favorite back nine holes at River’s Edge are hole number 10 because of its strong architectural appeal and hole number 15 with sweeping views of Central Oregon. His favorite golf course outside of Central Oregon is Bel-Air Country Club because of the way the architects uniquely routed the golf holes through the canyons of the Santa Monica Mountains.
Nick has been married to his wife Mary for nearly 12 years and recently welcomed his son Gage into the world. Nick enjoys being outside and has a passion for golf. Nick welcomes you to stop by to say hello and talk shop if you catch him and his lab, Gunnar, out on the course.
