John Zimmers, who for 18 years was entrusted with taking care of perhaps the most famous greens in the world, is leaving Oakmont Country Club to become superintendent at the Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio.
Zimmers, 45, leaves Oakmont less than a year after the club played host to the U.S. Open in June for a record ninth time. During his tenure, Zimmers was in charge of maintaining the grounds during the 2007 and 2016 U.S. Open, the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open and the 2003 U.S. Amateur.
Zimmers replaces Chad Mark, who left Inverness to become head superintendent at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
