Director of Golf
Ryan Sanders joined the Hunting Creek team in 2021. He served the membership at Quail West Golf and Country Club in Naples Florida for the last 5 years. Ryan is a native Louisvillian, an alumni of Bellarmine University, and a proud Cardinal fan! He is excited about returning home, being closer to friends and family, and of course; for the opportunity to be leading the golf operation at Hunting Creek.
After more than a decade away from Louisville, Ryan's career has allowed him to be part of some wonderful golf operations throughout the eastern United States. He was an Assistant Golf Professional at The Vineyard Golf Club in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, and at The Camargo Club in Cincinnati, Ohio. Also, he held the position of Head Golf Professional at Linville Ridge Country Club, Linville, North Carolina, and at Quail West Golf & Country Club.
During his career he has been a finalist for various Chapter and Section Awards, including Assistant Professional of the Year, twice and Merchandiser of the Year, four times. Ryan is passionate about creating experiences for you and your guest. He believes that the club should feel like an extension of your home and should enhance your daily life. When he is not serving the membership of Hunting Creek, he enjoys working on his golf game, spending time with his family and teaching his daughter, Peyton, how to play golf!
