In early March of 2014, right on the heels of the golf season, Cardinal Hill welcomed a new face and friend. Class A PGA Professional Brian Flax, hit the ground running as General Manager at Cardinal Hill.
This is Brian’s first assignment as part of the Orion Management Solutions Family, but far from his first opportunity as a leader and Golf Professional. Brian spent the prior four years managing Trails West Golf Course for the Department of the Army at Fort Leavenworth, during which time the facility made giant strides forward in customer service, enhanced food & beverage quality, and improved turf quality. Prior to his experience at Fort Leavenworth, Brian enjoyed three years as an Assistant Golf Professional at Lake Quivira Country Club working under mentor and friend Tom Aikmus (2013 Midwest Section PGA Professional of the Year). Brian began his career in golf at the age of 15 when he took a “Cart Kid” position at Lake Shawnee Golf Course in Topeka, KS where he stayed seven years learning and moving up the ranks through high school and college.
On December 1st of 2015, Brian was elected as the Kansas City Missouri District Director for the Midwest Section. February 2015 marks the start of his 16th year in the Golf Industry.
