Longtime PGA professional Scott Roth joins City’s golf operation

The City of Bloomington has selected Scott Roth as its new Assistant Golf Course Manager. Roth will assist in management of seasonal staff, events, guest relations and general facility operations at Dwan Golf Course.

Roth comes to Dwan after having served in a variety of management positions including, most recently, as Director of Strategic Initiatives at the National Sports Center in Blaine, Minnesota. Concurrently, Roth also served as Director of Golf at Blaine’s Victory Links Golf Course.

“Scott brings a wealth of experience in the golf industry and the recreation profession to the City of Bloomington,” said Golf General Manager Peter Kurvers. “He is a longstanding PGA member and has been a head golf professional, a director of golf and a general manager over his more than 20-year career.”

Susan Faus, Deputy Director of Parks and Recreation who is responsible for the City’s recreation facilities, pointed to Roth’s well-rounded operational background as an important factor in his hiring.

“He has a strong philosophy predicated on providing the highest quality customer experience possible. He cultivates engaged staff, employs sound business practices and works hard to ensure guests always enjoy a high-quality golf experience,” Faus said.

A native of Iowa and a graduate of Iowa State University, Roth previously served as the school’s Head Golf Professional and was an adjunct teaching professor in its College of Health and Human Performance. Roth will fill a vacancy left open by the departure of former Assistant Golf Course Manager Ali Hassan, who retired after 22 years with the City. Roth began as Assistant Golf Course Manager on January 10.
