His father, who worked in the industry, got him into the game when he was 3 years old. The new Operations Manager at Rancho Del Sol Golf Club loved the game so much he taught a lot of his friends while growing up and has been an instructor since joining the in- dustry himself 10 years ago. A lifelong Menifee resident, McCrory has been at Rancho Del Sol for 18 months, starting as a First Assis- tant Golf Professional and Tournament Director. But since taking over the new role in December his responsibilities include managing staff, booking and running golf tournaments, communicating with the superintendent about golf course conditions, launching the re- vamped men's and ladies clubs, grow- ing the rounds and reputation of Rancho Del Sol's new Disc Golf course, and much more. Here's what McCrory had to say about Rancho Del Sol and what he hopes to accomplish in the future: What are some of your goals as Operations Manager? To get golfers to experience our great Pete Dye-de- signed course, to showcase our great Avery Jenkins-designed Disc Golf course, and to make Rancho Del Sol one of the premier places to play in the Inland Empire. u u u What do you like best about the course? The Pete Dye design is my fa- vorite part. I love how the front 9 is more level and open golf, then the back 9 is a lot of elevation change and target golf. It feels like you're playing two different courses. u u u What do you want golfers to come away feeling after they've played Ran- cho Del Sol? I want golfers to feel like they had a great experience and got to play a great golf course that is going to make them want to come back and beat their previous score. u u u If you had to play one hole at Ran- cho Del Sol every day for the rest of your life, which one would it be and why? Hole 10, because there are so many different ways to play it. You can be aggressive off the tee and have a wedge into the green or play conservative and have a short iron into the green. The green also has a unique design with the undulations and different levels, which allows you to be creative with approach shots as well as when chipping around the green. There are a lot of great options for pin placements too, which makes this hole very fun and challenging to play – even though at 341 yards from the Black Tees it is not very long. u u u One thing you'd like golfers who've never played the course to know? When you look into the Pete Dye de- sign you can see how he put a lot of small details into the course that make it challenging, but also rewarding to the golfers who play it the way he wanted it to be played. I think that if golfers look at the de- sign of the course when they play, it will help them make decisions that will allow them to shoot their best scores. TAKING THE LEAD As new Operations Manager, Clint McCrory hopes to showcase the best of Rancho Del Sol
