Brad Harrington, General Manager of Palmbrook Country Club

Meet your General Manager

Brad Harrington, General Manager, came to Palmbrook Country Club when the new ownership group acquired the Club in late 2015. Brad is an Arizona native, a graduate of the University of Arizona, and is married to his college sweetheart, Kate. They have two young daughters, Charley and Kennedy. Brad has been working in the golf business since 2003, starting as an outside service staff member at The Pines of Golf at Marana, AZ. He had an opportunity to play golf there and quickly fell in love with the game, dropping his scores from 120+ strokes to in the 70’s in less than one year. This facilitated a move into the golf shop, where he quickly became Assistant Golf Professional. In 2006, Brad moved to the Hilton El Conquistador Golf and Tennis Resort, where he was named Interim Head Golf Professional. While there, Brad learned first-hand how a great brand like Hilton is built: by understanding what guests expect and delivering this with elegant, first class service. After five years at Hilton, Brad accepted the Director of Revenue and Daily Operations position at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club in Phoenix, AZ.

The Arizona Biltmore is a Waldorf Astoria property, and Brad was charged with assuring that each guest enjoyed a Waldorf Astoria experience. While there, the image of the iconic property was restored as Waldorf Astoria brand standards of excellence were achieved. Over the years, Brad has developed and managed special golf tournaments for many groups, including the LPGA, NFL Charity Classics, and the Basketball Hall of Fame. He has also planned golf events for his regular members, such as Grooms-tobe outings. He is happy to share his love of the game with, well, everyone. In 2014, Brad became General Manager of Coldwater Golf Club with Landscapes Management Group, where he distinguished himself as 2015 General Manager of the Year, and Coldwater was named most improved club. Brad is excited to now be at Palmbrook Country Club. Members can expect the same commitment to excellence that Brad brought to each club he was a part of, a commitment that the new ownership group shares.
