Donald Andrew (“Duck”), Cart Fleet and Range Management

Duck joined the London Downs team in 2017. Transitioning from a part-time cart attendant to a full-time staffer, he is responsible for the day-to-day management of our golf cart fleet. This includes proper rotation of the carts and complete cart maintenance from checking tire pressures to all cleaning and staging procedures. All the daily prepping of the fleet from tees, towels, scorecards, pencils, filling divot mix bottles, and loading bunker rakes is maintained by Duck and the part-time staffers he supervises. He also manages our driving range teeing area and the daily range picking. Duck enjoys playing golf and pool during his time off from work. When you see him around the shop be sure to say hello and ask about his favorite off-course interests: Duke basketball and Hurricanes hockey!
