After 23 years of service to Granite Bay Golf Club and it's members, Jogi Choung, our long time Assistant Superintendent has accepted the Golf Course Superintendent position at Empire Ranch Golf Club in Folsom.
Jogi came to the United States in 1984 from Punjab, India and started working at Cameron Park CC while attending night school to fine tune his English and Agronomic's. In 1994 Jogi followed Jim Ferrin, Granite Bay's first Superintendent, to help with the growing in of a new Golf Club in Granite Bay. He has been here ever since.
Jogi has always described himself as a "Farmer" and has been the steadying presence in Granite Bay's Golf Course Maintenance Department for over two decades. He is more then just a leader to everyone on the crew, he is a friend. He never raises his voice, always has a smile on his face and has always maintained demeanor that everyone gravitates too. We will all miss him but are happy for him with his new opportunity and that he will still be a part of the Club Corp family.
Jogi's last day at Granite Bay is Tuesday August 15th and we are having a little send away fiesta today, Thursday August 10th at 12:30 PM in the golf course maintenance yard. Anyone reading this that wants to bid Jogi farewell is more then welcome. Miguel & Enrique are making tacos as well.
