Judy Garrette Golf Staff Supervisor - Inside

Hometown: Massachusetts

I moved to The Villages in December 2002 from Massachusetts where I have always resided. After three years of playing golf and enjoying The Villages lifestyle, I decided to go back to work. I worked at Target for one year and came to work for GMS in November of 2006 as a Sales Associate for Hacienda Hills. I moved up to a roving Assistant Manager for Hacienda Hills, Orange Blossom, and Tierra Del Sol in September of 2010. An opportunity came up to be Assistant Manager at Hacienda Hills in April 2011 and this is where you can find me Wednesday through Fridays. For relaxation I enjoy golfing, bowling and lounging by my pool with a good book.

Don Johnson Golf Staff Supervisor

Hometown: New Jersey

Hello, my name is Don Johnson - No not the Miami Vice guy. I moved to the Villages in 2004. Before that I had a Domino's Pizza franchise in New Jersey for almost 30 years. We have 4 children in New Jersey, Florida, Pennsylvania and Texas. We also have 8 grandchildren. I worked at Havana on the outside staff for 3 years, but had to go back up north for personnel reasons.

I was born in Mineral Wells, TX on December 18, 1951. My wife Renee and I have three children and three grandchildren. My profession was in construction just about all of my life.

Brian Foster Tournament Liaison

Hometown: Lancashire, England

Originally from Lancashire, England I attended Bolton College and in two years attained my Salesmanship Diploma. I then became a member of the Lancashire Police in 1967. I then joined the Bermuda Police Department in 1971. In 1981 I left the Police to take employment as General Manager of a Retail Clothing Company in Bermuda. I became self-employed for three years and was asked to manage the Bermuda Squash Racquets Association with the mandate of preparing the Club for the first Bermuda Open Squash Tournament, which was achieved and opened by the World No 1 squash player Jahangir Khan. After completing my two year contract I took a position with Bermuda’s largest private Electrical Contracting Company, Universal Electric, as an Assistant General Manager. In 1996 I took a position as a personal assistant to Reginald Grundy, an Australian businessman. In 2002 I left Mr. Grundy and started my own Property Management Business. I sold this Company in 2004 and retired. My wife and I traveled the World for several years and purchased a property in Virginia which we renovated and spent 4 months a year there. In 2013 we received our Green Cards and became full time residents of Virginia. After three winters and having spent some winter time in Florida we decided to move to The Villages where we now call home.
