The Board of Park Commissioners is announcing the appointment of Kyler Booher, PGA, to the position of Director of Golf for the Miami Shores Golf Course effective March 5, 2018.
With Director of Golf Ken Green announcing his retirement effective March 1, 2018 , the Board of Park Commissioners sought to fill the Director of Golf position by an individual who would carry on the vision of Mr. Green and the Board of promoting golf, especially for young golfers; providing golfers with an excellent and well-maintained golf course; and seeking to improve the Miami Shores facility to enhance the golf experience.
In making the announcement of Mr. Booher’s appointment, Park Board President Alan Kappers stated: “Ken Green has been a great Director of Golf in every way. With his well-deserved retirement, the Board is excited to have Kyler Booher coming on board and leading Miami Shores and golf in Troy into the future, especially with the anticipated improvements to the Miami Shores Club House and creating a practice range. Kyler is from this area, having grown up in Pleasant Hill. We would like to think that when Kyler worked at Miami Shores under the direction of Ken Green during the golf seasons of 2009-2011, he recognized that Troy’s Miami Shores Golf Course would be the ideal place to further his career as a Head Golf Professional. ”
