A native of Detroit, John Guy is a
graduate of Michigan State University where he studied Hotel, Restaurant and
Institutional Management. Guy worked
for ClubCorp, a worldwide club management company, where he enjoyed an 18-year
career managing various clubs.
Following ClubCorp, Guy transitioned to the member-owned side of the private club industry, where he
served as General Manager of The Standard Club of Chicago for 11 years. His
accomplishments at The Standard Club earned him the Excellence In Club
Management Award, sponsored by the McMahon Group, Inc., a national private club
consulting and architectural firm, and was awarded by a panel of nationally
renowned club managers. While working in
Chicago, he worked as an adjunct professor at Roosevelt University where he taught the
club management class.
After The Standard Club, Guy decided to expand his experience to include country club management and in 2009
became the General Manager of Northwood Club (sight of the 1952 U.S. Open) in
Dallas, Texas. During his brief
tenure at Northwood Club, he raised the quality of food and beverage, overall
service levels, constructed and opened a full service 8,000-square-feet fitness
center with group exercise, child care and massage, a new half-way house,
100-seat indoor-outdoor poolside restaurant, and a resort-style pool complex.
In 2011, Guy transitioned back to his Midwest roots by becoming General
Manager of Westmoreland Country Club in suburban Wilmette.
