Forty-five years ago, Mrs Elvera Melby walked into my shorthand class at Lodi High School and asked my teacher if she had anyone she thought would be interested in applying for an office position at Woodbridge Golf & Country Club. Well, here I am, seven General Managers, at least 10 Chefs, four Golf Pros, six Superintendents and numerous office, dining, bar and kitchen staff later!
I was born and raised in Lodi and attended Reese, Lakewood, and Woodbridge elementary schools, and graduated from Lodi High School in 1975. I attended Delta College part time while working at the Club. My Dad, who passed away in 2016, worked at Sell Rite Market and my Mom worked for the City of Lodi in accounting. I met Bryan, my husband, while he was working at the Club as one of the Golf Assistants. We married in 1994, and have a son, Matthew, who graduated from Sonoma State. Matthew currently lives in Monterey with his girlfriend, Haley, and works at Bayonet/Blackhorse Golf Course.
I am very fortunate to have met so many members over the years and to be able to call you my friends. I have seen a lot of changes and it is exciting to work with so many creative, energetic and dedicated people.
See you at the Club… our home away from home!
