La Quinta Resort & Club and PGA WEST, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, announced the appointment of Rich Hohman as executive director of golf effective November 30, 2015. Hohman will be responsible for one of the largest golf operations in the United States, with nine championship golf courses designed by masters of the game – Greg Norman, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf and Arnold Palmer – as well as the famed Pete Dye-designed TPC Stadium Course at PGA WEST. Hohman will also be responsible for operating five clubhouses and two private country clubs, The Club at PGA WEST and The Citrus Club at La Quinta Resort. Hailed as The Western Home of Golf in America®, PGA WEST is also home to the PGA WEST Golf Academy.

During his career, he has held senior executive posts responsible for more than 150 public, private and resort golf facilities throughout the United States and the Caribbean.
Hohman’s tenure includes key positions in planning, construction and operations of world class golf developments within The Ginn Company in Florida and operations and management posts within the American Golf Corporation, where he advanced to Senior Vice President of Operations overseeing 95 golf facilities in the eastern United States.
“We are exceptionally pleased with this appointment, especially given Rich’s diverse background and wealth of expertise,” notes Paul Cherrett, managing director of La Quinta Resort & Club. “His vision and top-line ability to drive revenue, along with his demonstrated knowledge of all aspects of the hospitality and golf industries are an invaluable asset to the La Quinta team.”
