“We are excited to add Kelsey to our skilled management team,” said Salt Lake City Director of Golf Matt Kammeyer. “Her energy, perspective and background in marketing, program development and customer communications will aid in our goal to provide an improved golfing experience to city residents and visitors.”
“Salt Lake City’s golf courses are a huge community asset. Not only are they beautiful open space, but golf is a game that teaches respect and dignity,” said Kelsey Chugg. “I’d like to use this opportunity to bring the game to younger people and ensure that as golf grows in popularity again Salt Lake City is following that trend.”
