A LOVE of golf and career in hospitality have culminated in the dream job for Jason Kitchingman.
Mr Kitchingman is Duntryleague Golf Club’s latest general manager after first vying for the role three years ago.
Growing up in Cowra, he took up golfing as a teenager and co-ordinated the junior golfers before moving to Sydney for 12 years to hone his hospitality and management skills.

“Duntryleague is well renowned, it has a great reputation as a golf course.”
Mr Kitchingman said he hoped to fine tune the club’s existing offerings.
