Hacienda Hills - Staff

Kevin Sackville Golf Professional

Hometown: Scarborough, Maine

I had the privilege to join The Villages golf management team in October of 2013. Prior to my arrival, I worked in the golf, sports complex and retail facility management industry. Relocating to The Villages from the Boothbay Harbor Golf Club on the Downeast coast of Maine, I also spent numerous years as a golf professional at various Marriott Hotel golf resort properties throughout the country, managed a year round ice arena and worked for the leading outdoor sporting gear retailer, LL Bean. My wife Cherie and I have two children, Caitlin and Hunter. I enjoy golf, ice hockey and am an avid outdoorsman with a passion for upland hunting and extended backcountry hiking trips. As the head golf professional at Tierra Del Sol, Hacienda Hills and Orange Blossom Hills, I look forward to serving you at these locations and welcome you to stop in and say hello anytime.
