We would like to start at the top of the list. While we could start anywhere on it, we just felt like these individuals are the driving force to ensure things are getting done that encompass the entire property. These are the two top managers in the Pinehurst Market for Brown Golf; JP Longueil and Jimmie Murphy.
While they are two people, they work together as one to continually improve both facilities.
JP Longueil started with Brown Golf in 2017 after the company took lease of Orange Lake Golf & Resort. After showing his knowledge of the game and the ability to build an operation, JP was promoted to the role of Head Golf Professional. Since then, JP has spent time in different properties helping to transition them to the Brown Golf way of operating. Learning the corporate and financial side of Brown Golf, he is now the General Manager of Whispering Pines & Foxfire in the Pinehurst Market

I am very passionate about the golf industry; I love the game and being the best at what I do. I love to mentor and pass on my knowledge. I enjoy the outdoors and have been blessed to be in this industry. I look forward to making our properties “must play” courses.
