  • Food & Beverage Director
    • Tom Nicol

      Tom was born and raised in Minnesota, and began working in
      Country Clubs and golf courses at the age of 18. He has
      previously worked at clubs including Brackett’s Crossing,
      The Wilds, and The Legacy, all in Minnesota. 
      In his 
      mid-twenties, he made the move to the Southwest
      to pursue his food and beverage options year round. 
      He
      landed in Las Cruces, NM where he managed the Las Cruces
      Country Club and eventually became
      the Food & Beverage Director.

      After two years, he made the move to Phoenix, where he worked 
      at The Fridays
      Front Row inside Chase Field during the 2001 World Series and met his wonderful
      wife, BobbieJo. 
      His heart however, was still in the golf industry and he kept part time
      employment at Alta Mesa Country Club for several 
      years while pursuing other interests. 
      When the position at RMRCC became available, he knew that this club and 
      membership
      would be a good fit. He has a beautiful wife, a son, a daughter and two adorable pups
      that occupy his 
      time outside of work.  He also enjoys golf, volleyball, bowling, and
      vacationing with friends and family (usually the beach). 
      Tom is definitely bringing his
      brand of personalized service and creativity to RMRCC.  He is always open to any ideas
      from our members and any suggestions on how we can better serve you.
