Kevin Sackville Facility Manager

Hometown: Scarborough, Maine

I had the privilege to join The Villages golf management team in October of 2013. Prior to my arrival, I worked in the golf, sports and retail facility management industry for the past 20 years. Relocating from the Boothbay Harbor Golf Club on the Downeast coast of Maine, I also spent numerous years as a golf professional at various Marriott Hotel golf resort properties throughout the country, managed a year round ice arena and worked for the leading outdoor sporting gear retailer, LL Bean.

My wife Cherie and I have two children, Caitlin and Hunter. I enjoy golf, ice hockey and am an avid outdoorsman with a passion for upland hunting and extended backcountry hiking trips. I look forward to serving you at Tierra Del Sol and welcome you to stop in and say hello anytime.
