Associate of the Month | Kyle Delowe

The golf department nominates Kyle Delowe for September Associate of the Month.

September is a busy month for the agronomy team. The golf course hosts multiple events, including one of the most important events on our calendar: the first stage of Q-School for the Korn Ferry Tour. A large amount of preparation goes into getting the course ready to host this event. In addition to the preparation before the tournament, Kyle worked long hours on the days of the event to keep the course in tournament condition. Two days before the tournament, a storm hit the course and knocked over dozens of trees. Kyle worked tirelessly to help ensure the trees were removed before the tournament. His hard work and dedication makes all of the difference and does not go unnoticed. He is a team player and is willing to do what needs to be done to uphold the high standards we have at Ak-Chin Southern Dunes.
