Nease Hospitality Academy Students Tour Sawgrass Country Club

Nease’s Academy of Hospitality and Tourism students got a first-hand look at resort club management, thanks to the club’s General Manager and new Hospitality Academy Advisory Board Member, C.W. Cook.  The students had the chance to tour the brand-new Sawgrass Golf Club and Beach Club, and learn about both the front of house and back of house operations for each location.  Students got to see it all, from member services to the club restaurants.  Our Academy students also had the chance to hear from both Mr. Cook and the club’s Assistant General Manager, and learn about how they strive to make the Sawgrass Country Club a wonderful environment for not only their guests, but for their employees as well.  Mr. Cook is also generously offering our Hospitality Academy students the chance to intern at the club this summer to get some real world hospitality experience.  Many thanks to Mr. Cook!!
