A big change is coming to the Grounds Department. After 23 years as the mechanic in the Grounds Department, Head Mechanic, Ken Diethert is resigning. Ken and his wife Nancy have decided to move to Colorado so they can be closer to their children and grandchildren. Ken will continue in his current line of work as the mechanic at Blackstone Country Club in Aurora, Colorado.
Kenny began his long career at Minikahda in 1989 under the tutelage of former mechanic Bob Olson. Following Bob’s retirement in 1995, Kenny became the lead mechanic. We are very happy for Ken and his wife Nancy, but we will greatly miss his knowledge, his leadership and his skills as a mechanic. Kenny leaves us with some big shoes to fill and finding his replacement will be no small task. We wish Kenny all the best as he begins a new chapter in his life. Finally, thank you Ken for your dedication and commitment to Minikahda for the past 23 years.
