New General Manager/COO joins The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe
The Bridges Club at Rancho Santa Fe recently announced the appointment of Lenny Fisher as General Manager/ COO. Fisher will be responsible for overseeing the operation of The Bridges Club, a world-class golf course and club.
Prior to his appointment, Fisher served as General Manager of Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks. When he arrived at Sherwood, the club was in the process of transitioning from a developer-owned club to a member-owned club, just as The Bridges Club recently did. Throughout his eight years there, he coordinated numerous PGA events for the Tiger Woods Foundation. His attention to detail and leadership skills fortified Sherwood Country Club’s reputation as a world-class establishment.
Before his successful tenure at Sherwood, Fisher served as General Manager for 15 years at the well-established Hillcrest Country Club in Los Angeles. With 85 years of history and priceless stories that have been part of many books throughout the years, Hillcrest is among a small list of clubs with a quintessential brand in the Golf and Club industry.
As a graduate of the renowned Culinary Institute in Hyde Park New York, Fisher followed his passion in the food and beverage industry and began his career with the Hyatt Hotel Corp for six years. After valuable training with an industry leader, he moved to the Beverly Hilton as the Food and Beverage Director where he had the responsibility for overseeing the Governors Ball for the Academy Awards, The Golden Globes, Directors Guild and many Presidential and Dignitary visits over the years. Other experience included managing the complex of hotels at Universal and Managing Director for the historic Claremont Resort and Spa in Northern California.
Of all the challenging ventures Fisher has experienced throughout his career he sees his new position at The Bridges Club as the most exciting and one of great compatibility for both him and the club. His proven expertise in his field will certainly influence his future success at The Bridges Club. Both Fisher and his wife, Nancy, are looking forward to relocating to the San Diego region.
“We are excited to welcome Lenny to The Bridges team,” said The Bridges President, Fred Arbuckle. “His impressive background and resume will ensure his success as we embark on new and exciting times here at the Bridges Club.”
The Bridges Club is nestled among citrus groves, olive trees and the rolling foothills of Rancho Santa Fe.
