Top club role for Adams at Tucker’s Point
Paul Adams has been appointed general manager of club operations at Tucker's Point. He was previously at Turtle Hill Golf Club for four years, where he was PGA director of golf.
At Tucker's Point, Mr Adams will oversee all aspects of the club, including membership services, operations and sales. He will apply his knowledge and passion for golf and club operations to the property's 18-hole Charles Banks course, and will lead operations at Cliff Drysdale Tennis, as well as the property's pink-sand beach, the longest stretch of private coastline on the island.
Gary Lake, executive vice-president of Gencom, which owns the property, said: “Paul has a penchant for anticipating people's needs and is always on the pulse of what can be done better and more efficiently. We are confident in Paul's leadership skills and feel his expertise will resonate well with the team and our members.”
Mr Adams' extensive experience with social media and marketing was key to the success of Turtle Hill's events, including the Grey Goose World Par 3 Tournament.
He also leveraged relationships with top brands to build unique packages and programmes, and was effective at increasing exposure for the property worldwide. As the PGA director of golf he was integral to the growth in the club's membership base, partly due to the development of a coaching programme for adults and juniors.
Mr Adams said: “Having worked with Tucker's Point in the past, I know its prestigious reputation on the island and am honoured to be named general manager,” said Adams. “I am excited to further solidify the property's status as among the best in the world.”
In the past, he has held positions at Mid Ocean Club in Bermuda and Dukes Meadows Golf Club, in London, and has served as the president of the PGA of Bermuda from 2013 to 2016. He is qualified as a British PGA professional, is a member of the Club Managers Association of Europe and is certified in agronomy, club management, marketing and finance.
He said: “We have lots of exciting initiatives at the club planned for 2019, from improving golf course conditioning to running more family-based events and activities.”
