Rheanne Etken named Lawrence Country Club general manager

Lawrence, Kansas- May 15, 2014 – In an industry dominated by men, Lawrence Country Club recently announced Rheanne Etken as the new General Manager. While a female GM of a Country Club is not entirely unheard of, even more notable is that the position of Head Golf Professional is also a woman, Kristen Samp. There is only one other club in the country where women hold both of these top positions. A graduate of the University of Iowa, Rheanne has worked in several clubs throughout the country, including Troon Golf, which is the largest manger of Golf and Golf Club operations in the world, and graduated from the exclusive Troon Golf Leader Program. Rheanne is happy to be raising her two children Evelyn and Ryan in Lawrence with her husband Rob Etken, who is a native Lawrencian. “I am delighted to be a part of the ongoing history at Lawrence Country Club. My family and I are enjoying the Lawrence culture and the LCC hospitality. We hope to make this our home for many years to come.” LCC’s Golf Professional Kristen Samp comes to Lawrence from an 11-year career in professional golf. She spent four seasons competing on the LPGA Tour. In October of 2009, she earned her full credentials as a Teaching Professional from the LPGA and has been with Lawrence Country Club since April of 2009. To celebrate their 100th anniversary, Lawrence Country Club has lots of events for it’s members and the greater Lawrence community. For more information go to www.lawrencecountryclub.com.
