Brady Hatfield Named General Manager of Gamble Sands
Appointment at Top Public Golf Course in Washington Marks a Return to OB Sports for Hatfield
— OB Sports Golf Management is proud to announce the appointment of Brady Hatfield as General Manager of Gamble Sands. Hatfield will oversee all golf operations, as well as The Inn at Gamble Sands and Danny Boy Bar and Grill.
“I can’t even begin to describe my excitement level at heading to such a once-in-a-lifetime property like Gamble Sands,” said Hatfield, who spent the last 13 years as General Manager at Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, Wash. “I’m equally excited to be re-joining OB Sports, where I started in the golf industry. I look forward to working with the entire OB team to build upon the strong foundation already in place at this amazing facility.”
“Brady’s résumé and his unique experience with all aspects of operations – including golf operations, agronomy, food and beverage and lodging – make him the perfect leader for Gamble Sands,” said Orrin Vincent, Chairman and Founder of OB Sports. “We are so pleased to have him back with OB Sports, and are fortunate to have someone of Brady’s caliber lead us into an exciting future.”
Hatfield rejoins OB Sports after beginning his 25-year career in the golf industry at OB’s Angel Park Golf Club in Las Vegas in 1992. Hatfield also served stints as General Manager, Head Golf Professional and Golf Course Superintendent at OB’s Langdon Farms Golf Club in Portland, and at Trophy Lake Golf and Casting Club in Port Orchard, Wash.
A 23-year Class A member of the PGA, Hatfield directed all resort golf operations, including maintenance and membership programming, at Suncadia Resort. He coordinated the opening of the Prospector course in 2004, and the RopeRider course in 2009, recording profit margin growth in each year since becoming a 36-hole facility. He was also selected to lead Rooms Division for 18 months, where he oversaw the front desk, bell services, housekeeping, property maintenance and property management teams.
Prior to Suncadia, Hatfield spent two years as General Manager and Golf Course Superintendent at Alderbrook Golf and Yacht Club in Union, Wash. Under Hatfield’s watch, Alderbrook transitioned from a club environment to a viable business operation.
A graduate of Mississippi State University, Hatfield and his wife of more than 20 years, Sarah, have two boys: Jackson, a college freshman, and Tyson, a high school sophomore.
