This week we chat with John Murray, equipment manager for the Federal Club and the Kanawha Club, both located in VA. We discuss how he juggles jobs at two courses, family life, and his unique craft of guitar building. John's background is diverse, ranging from managing a playground equipment company, to being a caddy, and finally an equipment technician.
Coming to the turf industry later in life, he brings experience that helps him manage all the things in his two shops. John’s unique skill set contributes to his ability to develop systems and organizational strategies.
We discussed how he became a luthier (a maker of stringed instruments such as violins or guitars), what he likes about that hobby, and how it relates to other things he’s tackled in his life. A self taught guy in all disciplines of his career, we think you’ll find this conversation very inspiring.
