Tim Lynch Leaves Kernwood for CC of Naples

Tim Lynch, a fixture on the North Shore (of Boston) country club scene for 16 years, has moved on from his most recent assignment at Kernwood, spanning 14 years, to assume the position of general manager at the Country Club of Naples in southwest Florida.

“It’s been a grand experience the last 14 years at Kernwood — wonderful people, wonderful staff, a great golf course and clubhouse,” said Lynch, who got his start at the Doral Resort in Miami. He has also worked at premier clubs on Long Island and Cape Cod.

A Navy veteran and a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Lynch upgraded every aspect of country club life during his tenure at Kernwood, one of Greater Boston’s most prestigious clubs. He is prticularly proud of the work he did in upgrading the food programs with executive chef Jake Sztrykler.

He also was gratified with the appreciation shown him by the membership during times of crisis at Kernwood. “The routine stuff you handled with your best effort anyway,” Lynch said. “But when we were thrust into crisis mode and the entire Kernwood family came together to deal with those issues in the most appropriate and considerate ways, well, that made me proudest.”

As of the posting of this item, Kernwood was continuing the process of finding a successor to Lynch, the longest serving clubhouse/general manager in the club’s 98-year history.
