rob-haunRob Haun
My name is Robert Haun, I am seeking re-election to the Rupert Country Club Board of Directors.

I have served on the RCC Board of Directors for the last 3 years.  I am currently serving as your President.

With the help of the last several boards we have seen consistent improvement both fiscally and with course management. I would like to aid in the continuation of that process, moving forward in the same direction. As a member of the Board, I believe we can accomplish these goals.

My wife, Laura and I have lived in the Mini-Cassia area for 54 years. We own and operate Haun’s Hardware in Paul. We have two daughters and three grandchildren.

I have been a member of the RCC for 33 years. I have enjoyed raising my girls and now our grandchildren to love our Country Club and the game of golf as much as I do.

I have enjoyed my time on the board and hope that you would vote for me to represent you for the next three years.
Thank you.
Robert Haun

 

tyler-haynesTyler Haynes
My name is Tyler Haynes. Born and raised in the Mini-Cassia area. I am a happily married man, with 4 great kids. My wife and I own and operate Speedcraft Printing & Awards. I also work for D.L. Evans Bank as an Agricultural Field Representative. Rather than complain, I would like to get more involved in resolving some of the issues at the Rupert Country Club. As a board member, I can experience what goes on behind the scenes and assist in the progression of the country club. I am a firm believer that “action speaks louder than words”. This is why I think, I would enjoy being a RCC Board of Directors.

 

Randy Gillette
Hi I would like to introduce myself to those who don’t know me. I am Randy Gillette and farm north of Paul. I am married to Cindy and we have been members since the course added the back nine.

I was asked to be on the board when David Erwin passed away.

I have enjoyed serving and feel like I have accomplished good things during my time on the board.

The driving range that you enjoy was my brain child and I installed it myself. With the help of Bud Jensen, who furnished the yardage signs, we made this happen.

I like working on things on the course that will make you a better golfer. I would like to re-do our practice putting green to actually have the same slope as some of the greens on the course. We have a great chipping and putting green out by the 18th tee box. I would like to put sand traps in so that we can practice that shot.

My goal is to not only make the Rupert Golf Course a great place to play but also a great place to work on your game! I would appreciate your vote to help make this possible.

Personal Bio
My name is Phillip Garcia I am 45 years old and been married for 25 years to Kimberly and have two kids Jacob and Brittney. I have lived in Rupert all my life and played nearly my whole life, I played high school golf at Minico and love the game. I probably play among the most rounds of members and play weekends, mornings, evenings, men’s and couples so I see the course at all different times and conditions and think that could be a beneficial asset to the board. Brittney plays the Wee Links and on the Country Clubs traveling league in the summer and would like to be able to help promote youth golf and get them involved at the course since they are the future of the sport.

Join me in welcoming Randy Gillette to the RCC Board of Directors

Randy was raised on a farm north of Paul, just 9 miles from the Rupert Country Club.
He is the owner of Rocky Ridge Farms. He and his wife Cindy have three daughters and four
grandchildren. Ashley and Allyson both live in Utah and Ainslie lives in Paul.

Randy started playing golf when he was in junior high school. He has always loved the game
but has become an official “golf junkie” in the last ten years. Two of his daughters played on
the Minico High School golf team. He loves to travel and play golf courses wherever he is. He
and his wife joined the Rupert Country Club when they were adding the back nine holes. They
have watched a lot of changes over that time. He feels fortunate to have the Rupert Country
Club so close and accessible.

Randy is very excited to have the opportunity to serve on the board. He feels he has much to
offer the Rupert Country Club from his work experience and his desire to make positive changes
happen.

Some of the changes he would like to see on the course are:
• A practice putting green that resembles any of the greens on the front nine
• Better yardage markers on the driving range
• Tree roots cut out and cleaned up especially on the greens
• Tee boxes leveled
• A sand trap put in by the practice green by the 18th tee box.
