TRUCKEE, Calif. – The Golf Club at Gray’s Crossing appointed Travis Alley as it new head golf professional. Alley has been an employee of Tahoe Mountain Club (TMC), which owns and operates both The Golf Club at Gray’s Crossing and Old Greenwood, since his graduation from Methodist College in 2007.

At Methodist College in Fayetteville, N.C., he was a standout on the Men’s Intercollegiate Golf Team while completing the school’s renowned Pro Golf Management Program. Off the course, Alley enjoys many of Tahoe’s well-known favorite sports including fly fishing, mountain biking, kayaking and snow skiing.
