Cane Garden - Staff
David Williams PGA Certified Professional & Facility Manager
Hometown: Oxford, FL (born in Jacksonville, FL).
Moved to Wildwood, FL when I was four years old. While growing up, I watched The Villages grow (from my backyard) to become a golf and retirement metropolis. After college I traveled the country for two years teaching golf for a renowned company. As luck would have it, my career returned me to the place I knew the most, The Villages. I helped open the beautiful Cane Garden Country Club in December of 2004, and have been here ever since serving as the PGA Professional-Facility Manager.
My hobbies include: Spending time with my family, golf, fishing, barbequing, and anything else outdoors. I'm always looking to learn something new.
Tony WilsonAssistant Facility Manager
Born in Victorville, California (son of a USAF Fighter Pilot so no "real" hometown). I've been a Floridian since 1978 when father stationed @ Homestead Air Force Base. I am a graduate of The University of Florida w/bachelors in College of Architecture and I started my golf career @ Sombrero Country Club in Marathon, FL in 1989.
I am coming to The Villages from Hawk's Landing Golf Club @ Orlando World Center Marriott, where I have been for 7 years. I have been married for 26 years to my wife Missy and we have two sons Tyler (22) & Chas (19) both of whom are Gators!
David Carbary Assistant Manager - Inside/Outside
Hometown: Auburn, New York
I was born and raised in the Finger Lakes region of Central NY. There, my wife Debbie and I raised our daughter. Professionally, I was employed by the New York State Department of Corrections at Auburn Correctional for 31 years as a Computer Repair Instructor. In December 2011 after several visits we moved to the Villages and purchased a home in the Village of Tamarind Grove. I had the pleasure to join the staff of Evans Prairie CC in August of 2012 and open the facility in November of that year. I have enjoyed my time in the Villages playing golf and meeting a wide variety of people.
Nina Menci Assistant Manager - Inside
Hometown: Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Moved to the Villages in April 1998. Started working for the Golf Division at the Aqua Range in June of 2004 and was fortunate enough to be transferred over to Cane Garden for the Grand Opening in December of 2004. I found myself making Cane Garden my second home filled with lots of friends and many happy memories. My passions are playing the games that thrill me one moment and frustrate me the next - golfing, bowling, gardening and dancing with my hubby.
George Wolkhamer Assistant Manager - Inside
Hometown: Chicago, Illinois
After becoming empty nesters, my wife Deborah and I moved to The Villages from the Nashville, TN area in 2006 to enjoy the lifestyle and activities that The Villages has to offer. Having spent 35+ years in operational and sales/marketing positions within the automotive and industrial industries, I was ready to pursue my real passion...golf, golf, and more golf. In 2016, I had the good fortune to expand my love of the game even further by becoming a team member at Cane Garden. We live in the Village of Pennecamp and enjoy what each new day here in The Villages brings.
Rick Ward Assistant Manager - Outside
Hometown: Grand Ledge, Michigan
My wife Jean and I first visited The Villages in 2006 but it wasn't until 2013 that we moved here permanently. Raised in Michigan, Jean and I now get to enjoy golf year around and all things that The Villages has to offer.

My husband Don and I moved to The Villages from Allentown, PA in 2010. We have 2 sons who are still in PA. Before retiring I spent 40 years working in engineering with Verizon.
