Jerry West

Director of Operations
Jerry fell in love with the game of golf at a very young age. Spending time with his father and friends was truly an escape while growing up in the mountains of NC. This passion turned into a professional career in the early nineties upon graduation from Catawba Community College with a degree in Recreational Grounds Management and Agronomy. Positions at Cullasaja Club, Highlands Country Club, Highlands Cove and Old Edwards Club over the last 25 years have allowed Jerry to follow his passion and beat the alarm clock every morning. Old Edwards Club is one of the premier destinations for golfers, club members and guests alike, and Jerry hopes to spend many more years creating raving fans and growing a game that has become his life's passion.
