When Mike Nedrow and Burt Baine first met as fellow Northern Texas PGA professionals in 1980, neither would have predicted that thirty years later they would found a unique golf operation in far away Charlotte, North Carolina. However, that is exactly what occurred when Mike and Burt formed the Cadillac Golf Ranch earlier this year!
Having firsthand experience with the recent real estate and golf industry downturn, these two Professionals’ passion for the game and the people who play it led them to create the ultimate golf learning and practice facility. “Our goal is to provide the golfers of Charlotte with an outstanding, constantly improving, environment to learn, practice and share their love of the great game of golf” said the two.
Mike Nedrow is an award-winning PGA Class “A” Professional with extensive experience as Director of Golf of high-end, private, multi-course facilities and a proven record of successfully managing total golf operations. Mike has been an industry leader in junior golf as well as having hosted three PGA Senior Tour events and the 2006 US Girls’ Junior Championship. He began his career in Dallas Texas as Assistant Professional under the tutelage of the legendary Ross Collins.
In the early 90’s, Mike moved to Florida where he served as Director of Golf at the Deering Bay Yacht and Country Club and the Fountains Country Club. During his tenure in Florida Mike was responsible for the reconstruction of an entire 54 hole golf complex following hurricane Andrew.
In 1999 Mike accepted the position of Director of Golf at the prestigious Springhouse Golf Club at Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tennessee. While at Opryland, Mike’s Golf Shop operation earned consecutive Golf Business World “Top 100 Golf Shops in America” honors in 2000 and 2001.
In 2002, Mike moved his family to Charlotte to follow Jim Westbrook as Director of Golf at the 36 hole Carmel Country Club. While at Carmel, Mike was intimately involved in the planning and execution of the 2006 U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship. Mike left Carmel in 2006 and became a partner and General Manager of the Linville Falls Mountain Club and Preserve, a high-end private golf club community designed to be a second home and retirement property. Amenities included a championship golf course routed by Lee Trevino, a clubhouse marina access on nearby Lake James, and a planned equestrian center. The Club was the center of a 350 home development encompassing 700 acres. Unfortunately, the property was lost in foreclosure due to the economic slowdown.
Burt Baine has enjoyed a distinguished career in the golf industry which includes successful tenures as a Golf Professional, General Manager, Tournament Director, Course Architect, and Manager of several golf related residential properties. His employment history includes three years at the prestigious Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colorado, several years in the TPC division of the PGA TOUR, President of three golf development entities, and two years with ESPN as co-founder of the National Golf Challenge.
Baine has enjoyed success as a player having finished in the top 40 in the U S SENIOR OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP in both 2000 and 2001. In 2001 he was the medalist in the regional qualifier at Hilton Head, SC. A former PGA Chapter Champion and Sectional Player of the Year in Texas, Baine played in the 1997 Senior PGA TOUR School at Sawgrass, making the 36 hole cut. He has qualified for nine National Club Professional Championships in his career and continues to play a limited number of local and regional events.
Baine is also an experienced manager having been responsible for multi-course operations and serving as General Manager of both the TPC at Piper Glen and Pine Lake County Club in Charlotte. Most recently, he held the position of General Manager of The Club at Queens Gap, a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf community under construction in western NC. The project ceased construction early in 2010 due to economic conditions.
“I love golf and being around golfers” said Baine who will teach at the Golf Ranch along with Nedrow and two other Australian Professionals. “I look forward to seeing my many old friends and making many new ones at the Cadillac Ranch in the next few years”, he added.
