David McLay Kidd design set to open in 2024
LINCOLN, Neb.- Officials at Dormie Network, a national network of private destination golf clubs, announced its leadership team at GrayBull Club, a David McLay Kidd design set to open in the Nebraska Sandhills in 2024. GrayBull will be Dormie Network’s seventh course and first facility built from the ground up, joining the other Dormie Network clubs as a standard of first-class facilities and pristine course conditions to create true stay-and-play destinations.
Individuals named to leadership roles at GrayBull have all come from other courses within the Dormie Network. Tyler Hadden will assume the General Manager role at GrayBull after serving as Head Golf Professional at ArborLinks in Nebraska City. Director of Agronomy Michael Sheely and Merchandise Manager Lindsey Dykstra are also making the move from ArborLinks to GrayBull. In the kitchen, Executive Chef Joey Falco and Sous Chef Joshua Pistone come to GrayBull from Hidden Creek in Egg Harbor Township, N.J., while the husband-and-wife team of John and Mallorie Macchi are transferring from Dormie Club in West End, N.C., to fill the roles of Network Concierge and Food and Beverage Manager, respectively.
“With a great team in place here at GrayBull Club, we will build a culture that all of our members and guests will gravitate toward – fun, energetic, and creative,” Hadden said. “GrayBull will have great people, a relaxed atmosphere, and incredible views, not to mention upscale Dormie Network amenities and outstanding cuisine. Coupled with a world-class David McLay Kidd golf course design, I’m confident GrayBull will be in elite company as a golf destination in the Nebraska Sandhills.”
