Ben Taylor has worked full time for Des Moines Golf and Country Club since December of 1997. Prior to that time he had worked as a seasonal employee for the club. Ben has been done a myriad of things for club including equipment operator, cook for the maintenance staff and Administrative Assistant for the golf course maintenance department.
Ben has been an excellent employee and will be missed. He does a lot of the little things around DMGCC that people don't realize and once he is gone is going to take a unique individual to fill his shoes. This Friday December 9th is Ben's last day with us and we wish him the best for his twilight years. He has no plans for his retirement and hopefully he can get out enjoying his bird watching hobby and spending some time with his friend Glenda. We wish you well Ben and thank you for your efforts at Des Moines Golf and Country Club. Here is a photo of Ben as he receives his retirement gift. It is a tradition on the DMGCC Maintenance Staff to give a painting of a hole on the golf course. Jerry Steele who has worked for us for 32 years always paints the favorite hole.
