With “faith and a little bit of luck,” Alexa McDade has wound up as the Membership and Marketing Director for Prescott Golf & Country Club.
“Ken Byers (of Arizona’s Hometown Radio Group) is really the person who introduced me to the right people and got me started as a public relations and promotions director out of college … incredibly intelligent and kindhearted person,” McDade said.
Most recently, the owners of Prescott Golf & Country Club, Jeff and Jessica Hall, brought her on their team and have introduced her to the golf industry.
