Recreation & Parks - Aug. 5, 2014
Julius Reese has been named golf professional at Winston Lake Golf Course. Reese previously served as the course’s assistant golf professional.
Tim Grant, the city’s recreation and parks director, said that Reese deserves the promotion. “Julius has done an excellent job with managing the golf course, the Earnest Morris Junior Golf Camp, and the Pro Shop,” Grant said. “We have experienced numerous positive comments from citizens about his customer service and dedication to making Winston Lake Golf Course the best course in North Carolina.”
In June, Reese supervised renovations at Winston Lake that brought the golf course new greens and improved sight lines.
Reese has worked at Winston Lake Golf Course since 2010. Prior to that, he coached college and high school football and high school track. Reese is a 1989 graduate of Mount Tabor High School, where he played varsity basketball, football and track and set city-county records in track. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on a football scholarship and graduated in 1993. In 2012 he was inducted into the Mount Tabor High School Hall of Fame.
At the city, Reese was the runner-up in 2012 for the Rising Star Employee Excellence Award, given annually to a stand-out employee who has recently joined the city staff.
