Employee Spotlight: Beto Ramirez

Maintenance technician Beto Ramirez has been employed with the grounds department for 9 years.  He mastered all aspects of golf course maintenance and became a full- time employee in 2008.  During the winter months Beto takes care of all equipment washing and refurbishes everything from flagsticks to trash cans.  During the summer months you can notice Beto's work on our green cleanups.  He is the very best at a cutting a precise edge.

Beto lives in Des Moines with his wife of 9 years Raquele and daughter Stephanie (7).  He is originally from Michoacan, Mexico and is a fan of the Chivas, a professional soccer team in Guadalajara.  Beto has a good portion of his extended family living in the Des Moines area and enjoys spending time with them.  Beto's father- in- law, Antonio Berber, is also seasonally employed with the grounds staff.  Antonio is responsible for maintaining the flowers throughout the club.  

Beto's favorite hobby is bicycle riding.  He enjoys the warmer months when he can ride the bike trails with his wife and daughter.
