    Ladies of Golf: Kristen LaCount, GM and COO, The Country Club

    We originally recorded this podcast last June (2021), when The Country Club was one year away from hosting the 122nd U.S. Open Championship. The week has finally arrived, so we're republishing this interview with Kristen LaCount, GM and COO of The Country Club! 

    ...

    Welcome back to the Ladies of Golf series, where we introduce you to women who are working, playing and changing the sport.

    Now that the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines is complete, the next host, The Country Club in Brookline, MA, takes the big stage. Kristen LaCount, GM and COO of The Country Club will be a critical part of those preparations and we loved sitting down to talk with her about her role at the prestigious and timeless club. Kristen is the first woman to hold this position at TCC and her journey to becoming GM and COO is one of leadership and mentorship. Enjoy the conversation!

    Mixed Bag, Ep. 12: U.S. Women's Open Recap, Pinehurst shenanigans and looking ahead

    After spending a week together in the Sandhills, Abby and Justin recap their weeks at the U.S. Women's Open Presented by ProMedica. No one should be surprised that they guessed horribly in their predictions, but that didn't put a damper on their epic weeks at Pine Needles. The two discuss why it's so much fun going to an event with LPGA players (and why more millenials/Gen Z people should be going!), a few news items for the week and look ahead to upcoming LPGA events. Thanks as always for your review, rating and supporting the podcast! Don't forget to subscribe and we'll be back with our KPMG Women's PGA  Championship preview.
