paul malonson — general manger & coo

According to the Members,

Staff and Owners, Paul Malonson,

General Manager of Vineyards

Country Club has been an

unbelievable asset in starting

and continuing the health of our community and members.

Prior to joining Vineyards Country Club,

Mr. Malonson worked for 30 previous operating club facilities. During that time he developed the necessary skills to profitably manage the club. That’s right, I said profitably, without giving up the services and amenities the member expects.

Rick Ladendorf affectionately refers to Mr. Malonson as “Mr. Wall Street” for his financial and business savvy and his ability to provide an excellent member experience while staying focused on the P&L and Balance Sheet.

According to his employees, “Mr. Malonson gives us the inspiration to be better employees, not only in our jobs but in our hearts. His compassion and dedication to his membership and staff has taken this community to the next level in professionalism along with the creative way he brings out the best in everyone.”

Mr. Malonsonl has inspired and is spearheading a state-of-the-art wellness center & spa that is being considered as one of a handful of Wellness Academies that will educate department heads and board members from clubs nationwide.

An enthusiastic athlete and health conscious person himself, Paul is dedicated to keeping his members, staff and community members healthy.

In addition, Mr. Malonson understands the importance of being socially responsible, a good neighbor, a good employer and a great place to belong as a member, in part by keeping with a ‘green’ future.

The Members of Vineyards Country Club community have the confidence that Mr. Malonson is their influence and advocate in keeping their community strong, healthy and financially stable, not only by being the voice with the Board but with the community as well.
