Hopewell Valley Golf Club has appointed Jill S. Stabile as its new general manager and chief operating officer. The appointment came after an eight-month search. Said HVGC president John Lohse: “Her talent and extensive golf club experience are what we need to succeed in today’s highly competitive private golf club environment.”
Stabile was most recently the assistant general manager at Metropolis CC in White Plains, New York. She has also held management positions at Cherry Valley Country Club in Skillman, Roxiticus Golf Club in Mendham, Plainfield Country Club in Plainfield, Morris County Golf Club in Morristown, and Suburban Golf Club in Union. An avid golfer herself, she is a certified club manager of the Club Managers Association of America.
Founded in 1927, Hopewell Valley Golf Club boasts a 6,612-yard championship course designed by Thomas Winton.
“The golf industry is still recovering from the recession,” Stabile said. “But I’m thrilled to be facing that challenge here because of everything that Hopewell Valley has to offer for athletic, social, and business purposes.” Among the ideas currently under consideration, she said, are new corporate membership and trial membership programs, dedicated afternoons each week for transient play, cooperative relationships with hotels and business groups, and new incentives for golf outing planners.
“As we prepare the club for the upcoming spring, summer, and fall sports seasons, the board has made it clear that no marketing or membership development ideas are off the table,” Stabile said.
