King and Prince Golf Professionals

Mr. Rick Mattox, one of America’s most respected PGA professionals, has been leading the King and Prince Golf Course at the Hampton Club  for 25 years. Mattox, General Manager and Head Professional, who was honored in 2011 to receive the Bill Strasbaugh Award (presented to PGA members who have shown outstanding integrity and commitment to mentoring) has brought two new members to his island golf club team.

COLE STILES:

Born and raised in Athens, Georgia, Cole was ‘on course’ with his family before he even took his own first steps. He played collegiately at the University of West Georgia through 2006 and knew that golf would be a main frame in his future. He began his PGA work at the private San Jose Country Club in Jacksonville Florida as assistant Golf Professional and the Outside Service Manager. Cole moved to Sea Island Golf Club in 2011 where he completed his PGA work and became a Class A Professional. At the King and Prince Golf Course “Home of the Hampton Club”, he is the First Assistant Professional where he is working directly with Mattox to help build and grow both the experiences and opportunities for club members and guests. Cole and his wife Courtney, daughter Palmer (age 5) and son Parker (age 1), are enjoying life in the Golden Isles and all it has to offer for their young family.

 

‘JB’ WORKMAN

JB is a native of Hartwell, Georgia where he grew up in the golfing industry. His father is a superintendent and his mother is the Executive Director of the Georgia GCSAA chapter. He received his BA degree in Biology from Emmanuel College and Masters Degree from the University of Georgia in Turfgrass Science. With his passion focused on golf course superintendent, he also worked on his PhD for 1.5 years at the University of Missouri. JB is pleased to be working under Chuck Moore, Golf Course Superintendent where he is already serving the members and learning to manage the crew to maintain premier playing conditions at the Club. JB and his wife of one year, Crystal Workman, are very excited to be back in Georgia.

 

Mattox comments: “I am very excited to have Cole and JB joining our team. They are already a valued addition for the future of the King and Prince Golf Course. St. Simons Island affords them a wonderful place to live and enjoy quality family life while pursuing their chosen career paths.”

It’s no surprise that Mattox cares about his club members, visiting golfers, employees and the golfing industry. The Bill Strasbaugh Award recognized his impact on the career of others, obviously well deserved as his newly developed lineup move forward together into 2014.
