Terry comes from a farming/ranching background in Colorado. He started working at the age of nine, cleaning a local drive-in restaurant parking lot near his house. Every morning, his job was to clean that parking lot before going to school.
At age thirteen, Terry’s father passed away and he took on new responsibilities to help fill the place of his father. He has worked on a farm raising cattle, growing alfalfa, corn, sugar beets, and other farming products. At age eighteen, he worked on a ranch in Colorado for two years raising, feeding, and breeding cattle, not to mention growing hay, and got comfortable riding a horse every day.
Terry was very active in sports in high school through college. At age twenty, he attended the University of Northern Colorado on a two-year golf scholarship and obtained his BS degree in Business Administration with an emphasis on management. He was offered a scholarship in basketball and golf, and decided to pursue golf in college. He later attended graduate school at Colorado State University where he continued his Masters studies in Business Management.
In 1975, Terry opened and operated an art supply/framing/gallery for 10 years near the college he attended. He had three locations with over thirty employees in the town of Greeley and distributed wholesale products to outlying cities until 1985.
Terry joined the Haggin Oaks Golf Shop in 1985 and became an apprentice golf professional. Initially, his career goals were to become a Head Golf Professional. Because of his educational background and his previous small business experiences, he became more valuable in an administrative position than as a golf professional. Over time, he was selected to become the General Manager of Haggin Oaks Golf Complex and today is the President of Morton Golf.
Terry has spent thirty years quietly becoming the leader of all aspects of Morton Golf. He is happily married to his wife Karen, and has two lovely daughters, Mary and Jenny.
