ART SANTOS APPOINTED DIRECTOR OF TENNIS AT PINE HILLS COUNTRY CLUB

Sheboygan, Wisconsin – Pine Hills, the only private country club in Sheboygan, recently announced an agreement with Peter Burwash International (PBI) to direct its tennis program beginning May 15th.

The program represents a new focus on revitalizing tennis activities at the club. For over 25 years, PBI directed a popular and award winning tennis program at the Sports Core in Kohler under the direction of PBI Tennis Professionals Art Santos and Kip Koross.

In conjunction with the agreement, PBI has appointed Art Santos as Director of Tennis for Pine Hills. Originally from Hilo, Hawaii, Santos was the state’s collegiate champion, including top ranking in men’s singles on the island of Hawaii for 5 years. After early assignments in his PBI career at a variety of locations in the Middle East, Europe, Caribbean and Asia, Santos moved to Sheboygan in 1986 to direct the tennis program at Sports Core. During that time he won numerous awards from PBI, Kohler Co., and the Wisconsin Tennis Association for his dedication, hospitality and expertise in tennis coaching including recognition as Wisconsin’s USPTA Pro of the Year.

“When we considered how to revitalize our tennis program we were fortunate to learn that PBI was interested to help us out and that Art Santos was available and still living in the area. Art’s experience and coaching skills are well known to many in this community so we are excited to bring back tennis to our club,” said General Manager Paul Hattimer. “PBI is planning a full range of instructional programs as well as special events and tennis camps for juniors.”

“I’m very excited to lead the tennis program at Pine Hills as part of PBI,” stated Santos. “Our goal is expose as many Pine Hills Members as possible to the fun, health and social benefits that tennis provides. Whether for adults or children, beginning or experienced players, we’ll have a program for everyone to enjoy.”
