Meet the Director of Golf Operations, Jay Dennis
Born and raised in Canton and current resident of Simsbury, Jay has been an avid golfer for 35 years. He has experienced the game, both playing competitively as well as an employee at Golf Club of Avon, Canton Golf Course, and the New England School of Golf.
Outside of golf, Jay has spent 22 years managing day-to-day operations for a packaging supply business, allowing him to work directly in the customer service industry and eventually opening the doors that led him to Blue Fox Run.
Jay considers Blue Fox Run his “home away from home" since he has been an active member and board member in the Men’s Club the past 7 years and is now in his second year as Director of Golf Operations. Through his experiences, Blue Fox Run has always been a warm and welcoming club, thanks to the Wilson and Foley Families, and he hopes to continue this tradition and strive to enhance the club in this capacity.
