When I retired from 26 years in the corporate world I chose to move back to my hometown to live a beautiful simple life with my husband and two poodles. I grew up in Heyburn and graduated from BSU. I’ve lived all over the United States holding high level senior executive management positions within two very large mortgage lenders. This experience has enabled me to understand what it takes to manage all aspects of a business from people to finances.
My name is Ty Erling and I have been a member of the Rupert Country Club for 25 years. I’m a salesman at Sun Valley Potatoes in Paul, husband to Dina, Dad to two daughters and we have one grandson. I grew up on the Rupert Country Club Golf Course. I started working at the RCC when I was 14 and purchased my own membership as the Back Nine planning began. The love for the game flourishes in my family. Working on the course, in the pro shop and playing as a member has made the RCC an important part of my life. In my years as a member, I have served on your Board of Directors twice and most recently served as the President of the Board. One of the first things I learned as a board member is that the challenges we face with our budgets and small greens staff are great. However, with a dedicated board that holds the condition of our course as a priority, I realize the challenges are easier to tackle. My loyalty and affection for the continued success and growth at the Rupert Country Club is important to me on many levels. I’m asking for your vote of confidence to represent the Country Club on the Board of Directors once again this year.
