Gerry Pockat, Club Manager of Copper Mill Golf Club, Recommendation for Kevin Battersby
During my time as General Manager at Mission Country Club in Odessa, Texas, I had the pleasure of working with Kevin Battersby as an integral part of our management team. Kevin was our teaching professional, and brought so much more to the organization than what our very high expectations were for the position. Kevin had the vision, enthusiasm and professionalism that enabled him to deliver a program that was unparalleled in the marketplace. In his position, he not only developed quality teaching programs for the membership, but he also developed and managed the junior golf program for us. He was the reason our golf operation was at that time viewed as the best operation in that part of the country. Kevin always found a way to go the extra mile to make our program interesting, exciting, and unique. Whether it would be bringing in John Elliott JR. to be part of our own member golf camp, or bringing in Bib Toski to spend a day with the juniors and speak at our junior golf banquet – Kevin always delivered that extra touch and flare that made our golf program the talk of the area.
And Kevin’s contributions didn’t stop with golf. Kevin was a true team player for the Club and was always willing to go the extra mile for the organization. As with new development clubs, membership recruitment was always a major priority for our organization. One season, our Club’s very good Marketing Director resigned going into the peak of our season. Kevin volunteered to coordinate the marketing effort that year while still running his components of the golf program. During that time he led the management team in a very well coordinated marketing effort that greatly exceeded results from the prior years.
Part of my enjoyment in my career has been working with many quality managers throughout the years. None have surpassed Kevin in terms of performance, enthusiasm and results. Kevin has a true love for the game, along with a love of people that comes across in everything he does.
