LUDLOW, Vt. – Okemo Mountain Resort’s Golf Division welcomes PGA Professional Jim Gunnare as head professional at Tater Hill Golf Club in Windham, Vt.
A long-time Vermont PGA member, Gunnare served as the head professional at the Woodstock Country Club from 1985 to 2016. He brings years of experience in Vermont Golf to Tater Hill, and Gunnare has won multiple merchandising awards, as well as the Vermont Chapter Professional of the Year Award in 1999.
While at Woodstock Country Club, Gunnare served in the New England Section of the PGA, and as vice president from 1997 to 1999. He also held the position of head golf coach for Woodstock Union High School from 1998 to 2016.
“We are extremely excited to have Jim join our golf team as he brings with him years of experience in both semi-private and public golf,” said Okemo Vice President of Golf Operations, Jim Remy. “He understands the Vermont golf landscape and is outstanding in providing member and customer service.”
Gunnare is scheduled to begin his duties at Tater Hill Golf Club on April 23. Tater Hill is expected to open for the season in early May.
Tater Hill is an 18-hole championship course. Formerly the Windham Hill Golf Club, the facility was purchased by Tim and Diane Mueller in April 2004 and expanded from its original nine holes of play.
Although it offers plenty of challenge for low handicaps, golfers of all ability levels can enjoy the layout that features undulating fairways, spectacular views, cottage-style flower gardens, and the casual ambience of an old Vermont hill farm. Tater Hill is located on Popple Dungeon Road off Route 11, 22 miles southwest of Ludlow.
