Colin looks forward to becoming part of the golf community in Lexington, Kentucky, and is excited to serve as Director of Golf at the newly renovated Griffin Gate Golf Club, backed by a $1 million bunker renovation project in 2015, under the direction of Rees Jones, who designed the original layout in 1981.
