Charlie Fultz ’92, has been named the permanent general manager and superintendent of Heritage Oaks Golf Course, a municipal course in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Fultz has served as the interim general manager and full-time golf course superintendent since October 2020, at the same time serving as athletic fields coordinator for the city. Heritage Oaks, an 18-hole course, was recognized in June 2021 as one of the top 25 underrated municipal golf courses in the United States by Golf, the premier magazine in the golf industry.
Fultz, who earned his Longwood degree in physical education, also is a 2006 GCSAA Leo Feser award-winning journalist. He is working on the final installment of his three-part series on returning to golf course management after a 13-year hiatus, during which time he taught eighth-grade math for several years. The series is running in Golf Course Industry, a magazine that covers the golf course business. In one of the initial installments, Fultz wrote: “I love this profession, I love this business, and I love the challenges a golf course brings each day.”
