Meet The Staff

Adam Brandow - General Manager 

There is nothing Adam loves more than seeing members active and enjoying the club! His main focus is delivering the ultimate "family & friends" club experience in Kearney, and he loves to talk about his passion for Kearney Country Club.  Adam isn't particularly proud of his golf game, but always enjoys getting out to play with the membership! 

Ash Hammond - Head Golf Professional 

Ash is happy to be back in the Midwest having spent the last 14 years in Southern California.  Born and raised near Alma, Ash is familiar with Kearney and the quality of people in the area.  Ash, his wife Erika, and their son Ivan have a home in Axtell one block away from the swimming pool where Ivan spends most of his time.  Ash brings to the club a strong passion for customer service and taking care of members at a private club.  Some of his many hobbies include playing as much golf as possible, playing card games, and hiking.  Ash is a diehard University of Kansas basketball fan and hopes to attend a few games during the winter months!

Katie Brandow - Marketing & Events Manager

Scott grew up in southeastern Nebraska and after stops in Iowa and North Carolina, moved to Kearney in 2016.
