Oak Hill Country Club has named a new head golf professional, replacing Craig Harmon, who is retiring after 42 years in that role, officials announced Thursday.

Jason Ballard, 35, will begin work at Oak Hill shortly after New Year’s Day, officials said. The native of Santa Rosa, Calif., is senior assistant golf professional at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia.

He has worked at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md.; East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta; Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio; the Rim Golf Club in Payson, Ariz.; and Gold Canyon Golf Resort in Canyon, Ariz.

“Jason’s wonderful background and golf expertise will be an excellent addition to continue the high-level golf experience our members and guests have come to expect and enjoy,” Oak Hill president Ronald Pluta said in a statement.

Ballard will be responsible for all golf-related operations at Oak Hill, including member and guest play, tournament operations, golf instruction, the practice area and service center, and the golf shop, officials said. He also will be the ambassador to members, guests and the community.

An official celebration of Ballard’s arrival and Harmon’s retirement is scheduled for May, officials said.
