Poplyk arrives from Bayonet at Puppy Creek Golf Course outside of Fayetteville where he served as the head professional for over two years and Legacy Golf Links near Pinehurst for the prior 14 years. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Poplyk served as a medic in the U.S. Army and spent 15 years in the chemical research industry. He moved to Pinehurst in search for a new career path and has found success ever since.

“I fell in love with the Cypress Landing community during a visit three years ago and jumped at the opportunity when it became available,” says Poplyk. “I look forward to helping guide the staff here as we continue to reaffirm Cypress Landing as one of the best golf experiences on the Inner Banks.”

Poplyk will join seasoned professionals dedicated to providing a fun and enjoyable guest experience. The onsite team will facilitate clubhouse operations, golf course maintenance, marketing and sales, staffing and training, merchandising, golf instruction and financial management for the course.

Opening in 1996, Cypress Landing rests among beautiful tall pines and lakes along the Inner Banks and Chocowinity Bay. The par-72 course, designed by Bill Love with Ault, Clark & Associates, combines a friendly atmosphere for the newer player with a solid challenge for the more experienced and was recently featured as a top course in North Carolina by Golf Advisor.

“Brad’s extensive time as a head pro in the state of North Carolina will be crucial in his role in continuing the momentum we have gained in 2020,” says Stanley Elliott, superintendent. “He will be able to provide key insight on all golf course needs as we promise to bring a standard of guest service and course conditions the local community will surely be proud of.”
