Daily Staff Report
Vail, CO, Colorado

Country Club of the Rockies has selected a new general manager and chief operating officer. Pentti Tofferi will assume the position Monday. He succeeds Ken Mesloh who recently resigned from the position for family health reasons after more than 15 years in the position.

Tofferi, a Vail Valley resident for more than 40 years, takes over the senior operating manager position at the country club after 18 years with the Club at Cordillera. He joined the club as PGA Head Professional, then became director of golf and director of membership.

“As a member-owned club, it was very important to find someone to assume this important position who embraced our Vision and Mission and who supports the special member relationships and high quality and service level of C.C.R.,” Randy Smith, President of Country Club of the Rockies, said.

Tofferi said the job is a unique opportunity.

“I am excited to be asked to lead this club on a day-to-day basis and to work with its outstanding membership,” he said. “In today’s environment it is rare to find a club as financially sound as C.C.R. and with the strong track record of attracting new members.”

Pentti, along with being a Class A PGA Professional, is also a fully certified Professional Ski Instructors of America ski professional and brings to the club the dimension of an alpine skiing program. An announcement will be sent to the membership next week launching a weekly member ski day that will continue through March.

Country Club of the Rockies is a 350 member-owned club located in the Arrowhead community, with members from all over the Vail Valley and the world. It is anchored by an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature course and a clubhouse with the public Vista Restaurant.
