“Sean’s multi-faceted experience with high-end private clubs, and with premier golf resort destinations, will be invaluable to our firm,” said OB Sports President C.A. Roberts. “His resume spanning almost 30 years in the golf industry speaks for itself. We are lucky to have him at OB Sports.”
Cracraft began his golf career as the first graduate of the Professional Golf Management program at Mississippi State University.
