Greg Morrison

This month I would like to highlight Greg Morrison. Greg is currently the PGA General Manager and Director of Golf at Hurricane Creek Country Club. He was elected to membership in 1993. Throughout his career in the golf business, Greg has worked at Las Colinas Country Club and Fairview Golf Center before joining Hurricane Creek. 

Outside of golf, Greg has been married for 33 years to his wife Susie, and together they have three sons. Tragically, two of their sons, Matt and Brady, passed away within the past five years at the ages of 32 and 26, respectively. Their third son, Miles is 30. He and his wife have two children: 6 year-old Avery and 3 year-old Micah. 

Below are some other things you might not know about Greg. 

What do you love about the golf business? I love the relationships. Golf is a game, sport, hobby, and a business that fosters relationships. In my life, it started with my dad and kept us close throughout our lives. Friendships that were made in college and competition I still have today. Also, being blessed to spend over 25 years at the same club has led to being part of a family much bigger than my own.  

Who got you started in the game? My dad. 

Did you play college golf? I played college golf at the University of North Texas from 1980-1984. 

What is your most memorable moment in golf? My most memorable moment in golf is the NCAA Championships in 1982 at Pinehurst Course No. 2 in Pinehurst, North Carolina. 

Where is your favorite golf destination that you have played? I loved the courses that I’ve played in Scotland. 

Who makes your dream foursome? It would have to be a five-some: My dad, and my sons Matt, Brady and Miles. 

What is a course that you wish you could play but have yet to have an opportunity to do so?  I would love the opportunity to play at Augusta National. 

What is something interesting about yourself that other members may not know about you? I once won a trophy for dancing.

What is your favorite type of music? My favorite type of music is Contemporary Christian. 

What is the best golf book that you would recommend? I would recommend Dead Solid Perfect by Dan Jenkins.
