MAYETTA: Randy Towner has been named the general manager/ golf professional for Firekeeper Golf Course and began his position November 2. He was formerly the golf professional at Alvamar Golf Course in Lawrence, Kan. for 22 years and has strong ties to the University of Kansas (KU).
“I am real excited to be here,” he said. “I am hopeful that I can make the Prairie Band people really proud of Firekeeper and make it a financially feasible product.” He said that one of the reasons he took the job is to help further Prairie Band Casino & Resort (PBCR) as the top destination casino in the region and by adding the new golf course it should broaden the market.
Towner said he thinks the course is beautiful, is playable for all levels of golfers, and that he is anxious to teach the game of golf to individuals and in group clinics. He is also interested in working with schools in the area and the community at large and getting to know everyone here.
This winter Towner is organizing the clubhouse and getting it ready for opening day this spring. Dining room furniture arrived last week and as a member of the Landscapes Unlimited Inc, team he is hiring an assistant and other staff to run the golf course this spring. He is also working with the PBCR staff on scheduling individual and group golf packages for 2011 that include a hotel room and round of golf.
