Staff Spotlight | The Grounds Team
Ken Cross
Grounds Director
Randy Miller
Grounds Team
Jonathon Murdock
Grounds Team
Three faces you may not often see, but whose presence you would definitely miss if they weren't with us, are Ken, Randy, and Jonathon.

Ken is the longest running employee of the Greater Houston family, dating all the way back to 1998! You will most likely see him on his mule or the tractor flanked by his two, beautiful, white German Shepherds, Loki and Aries.

Ken, Randy, and Jonathon are to thank for clubhouse maintenance, countless specialty and improvement projects to our shooting venues, and updates to our comfort and shooting stations. Two of their ongoing and most significant projects are keeping the grass mowed and mosquito eradication, neither of which are any small feat!

Be sure to thank Ken and his team when you see them for all the hard work they contribute behind the scenes to make our grounds as warm and inviting as possible!
