NEW GM TO BRING EXCEPTIONAL STAFF AND GUEST EXPERIENCES
Grand Bear Golf Club would like to extend a warm Biloxi, Mississippi welcome to our new general manager, PGA of America Member Brad Kale, who will bring nearly three decades of golf-management experience to the Jack Nicklaus Signature design.
Kale comes to Grand Bear from Twin Isles Country Club in Punta Gorda, Florida, and has extensive experience within the Tournament Players Club (TPC) Network including stints at TPC at Piper Glen, former home to Mr. Arnold Palmer’s Senior PGA TOUR event, the PaineWebber Invitational, TPC at Eagle Trace, former home of the PGA TOUR’s Honda Classic, and TPC Scottsdale – home of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the VICI Golf family and to join the phenomenal team at Grand Bear,” said Kale. “The vision Mr. Nicklaus had to create an outstanding golf experience is obvious from the moment you arrive at this gorgeous property. I’m looking forward to being a part of the next chapter at Grand Bear.”
Kale will assume direct responsibility for overseeing all golf, F&B and golf course maintenance and agronomy operations for the club, as well as delivering exceptional staff and guest experiences.
“Brad has demonstrated a profound knowledge for management and a commitment to customer-service excellence,” said Jeff Krohn, vice president of VICI Golf operations. “We’re extremely excited to welcome Brad to the team.”
When he’s not at Grand Bear Golf Club, Kale, who attended Indiana University, enjoys spending time with his family, fishing, and rooting for the Chicago Cubs and IU basketball. Kale is happily married to his wife Trish, who he met at IU. They have three children and two grandchildren.
