Mangum resigns GCSAA director position
Tommy Witt, CGCS accepted the resignation of Ken Mangum, CGCS from the Golf Course Superintendent’s Association of America (GCSAA) board of directors on April 2. Witt appointed Ricky Heine, CGCS to serve out Mangum’s term, which ends at the February 2002 annual meeting in Orlando, Fla.
Mangum, who is director of golf courses and grounds at The Atlanta Athletic Club in Duluth, Ga., was first elected to the GCSAA board of directors in February 1996. In resigning from the board, he cited a number of projects at his facility that would require his full attention in the upcoming years. Those include hosting the 2001 PGA Championship this August, the U.S. Junior Amateur in July 2002 and a remodeling of the Riverside course in the spring of 2003.
“I felt like it was time to step aside and allow President Witt to appoint someone who could devote the time necessary to fulfill the duties of a GCSAA board member,” Mangum said. “The Atlanta Athletic Club is one of the greatest clubs in the world and my job responsibilities have increased significantly in the last five years.
“I truly appreciate all the support I have received from the GCSAA membership and staff during my tenure on the board. I’ve had the opportunity to meet and make lifelong friends.”
Heine is the certified golf course superintendent at The Golf Club Star Ranch in Austin, Texas. A GCSAA member for 19 years, he is a member of the Central Texas GCSA and the Lone Star GCSA, and is a past president of both. Heine was narrowly defeated in February in his campaign for the GCSAA board of director position.
