Bobby Kidder is a 24+ year veteran in the golf industry. He is a graduate of Allegheny College and played fullback for the Gators from 1994 to 1997. Bobby also played football for Youngstown State and was a member of their 1993 National Championship team.

Before joining Duck Woods Country Club, Bobby worked for ClubCorp as the General Manager at Stonehenge Golf and Country Club in Richmond, Virginia. Before joining ClubCorp, he worked for Indigo Golf Partners (formally Billy Casper Golf) as the Regional General Manager for the Prince William County portfolio. His clubs earned regional awards for ACE the Guest Experience (2019), Most Improved Facility (2020), and Service Through Safety (2020). Prior to that, he was the General Manager at Magnolia Green Golf Club, in Chesterfield, Virginia. During his tenure, the club received national awards for ACE the Guest Experience (2013 & 2014) and was also named one of the top 10 New Golf Courses by Golf Digest (2015). As an individual, Bobby was recognized as the General Manager of the Year (2014) and was also the recipient of The Coach’s Award (2017), which is given to an individual who “demonstrates a positive attitude at all times and provides above and beyond support to our BCG clients and their clubs. They show a passion to lead and improve themselves, as well as their team, and demonstrate a humility that brings out the best in everyone they work with. They are continually looking for the next challenge and motivate their teams to exceed all expectations”.

Bobby’s goal at Duck Woods is to offer the best club and experience in North Carolina. His door is always open and he looks forward to each interaction with members and guests.

Bobby has been married since 2008 and shares a son (Morgan) and a Schnauzer (Toby) with his wife Nichole. Their son and his wife, Michele, recently made them proud grandparents of a little girl, Diana Grace. A native of Follansbee West Virginia, he is a die-hard Steelers fan and loves to play golf.

The Board of Directors at its January meeting voted for a 3.5% dues increase effective April 1st, 2021. While the Club’s 2020 financial year was favorable, it was a result of good expense management and the substantial benefit from the covid-19 federal government relief the Club received. We do not expect aid of this amount going forward.
 
In addition to the continuing health crisis, financial challenges to Duck Woods remain. The club has sustained years of rising product costs and both staff and professional labor costs without adequate dues increases. In all but one of the last few years we have used our cash reserve to cover our revenue shortfalls. Without some adjustments the Club will continually be challenged as expenses outpace revenues. A small dues increase at this time helps reverse the trend of using cash and keeps us on a better financial path.
