Sun Country is excited to welcome Cory Armstrong as the new Executive Director of the Sun Country Golf House. A graduate of West Virginia University, Summa cum Laude in Sports Management, Cory brings 19 years of golf administration experience from his time in the Michigan, Southern Ohio and Carolinas PGA Sections. Most recently he served as Assistant Executive Director in the Carolinas PGA, where he oversaw a robust tournament and fundraising program, among many other responsibilities.
Cory enjoys golf, collecting putters, mountain biking, and barking at the TV during WVU games. He will join the Sun Country Golf House staff in February.
“I am extremely humbled and proud to become Sun Country Golf House’s next Executive Director,” said Cory. “Through my research and conversations with people involved with both organizations, I have been impressed and encouraged by the amount of passion and dedication to golf that exists in New Mexico and West Texas. I am told this place is unlike any other in the country, and that I will love it. I look forward to experiencing all the region has to offer.
“I have consistently stated that I am glad to continue serving PGA Professionals (as I have done for 19 years); however, I can also proudly serve my fellow amateur golfers. It is that combination that particularly excites me about this opportunity. There are only two other PGA Sections and Amateur Golf Associations (Indiana and Kentucky) operating in concert the way Sun Country does. It is admirable, advantageous, and powerful. We can speak for and impact golf throughout the region with one voice.
“Thanks to the leadership of your Boards of Directors (previous and present) as well as the contributions of Past Executive Director Dana Lehner, our staff can maintain our current successes and focus on growth. Key areas will include Foundational development, corporate partnerships, and increasing the number of amateur golfers in the region. Each focal point goes to benefit all of our Golf House organizations. I will strive to show you impact immediately and consistently.
“I cannot do this alone. I, the staff, and the Boards of Directors will need your support along the way. We welcome your thoughts, your opinions, and your suggestions.
“I look forward to meeting and serving you in the Land of Enchantment!”
