Jay Porter has been appointed the new general manager/chief operating officer and Charles Nagle the new dinning room manager at Palmetto-Pine Country Club. The appointments are effective as of mid September.
After conducting a nationwide search, Palmetto-Pine Country Club believes it has chosen two excellent leaders who will guide the efforts to preserve and improve the club, officials there said.

At Merion, he developed a web site for the U.S. Amateur which was later donated to the U.S.G.A.
As general manager of La Gorce Country Club, the premier private club in South Florida, Porter successfully completed a golf course renovation approved by Jack Nicklaus as well as upgrading the club’s IT software and hardware systems. In addition, he overcame significant security issues and implemented a comprehensive plan to insure the safety of members, guests, and staff while GM at Germantown Cricket Club
Porter is a graduate of Florida Atlantic University and completed Business Management Institute levels I, II & III. He also is a certified club manager.
