Meet Our Team
Co-Owner & President, Sagamore Golf, Inc.
Richard is a fourth-generation Luff family member who got his start in the family golf business at the age of eleven, picking up trash in the parking lot and repairing ball marks on the greens, tasks he continues to do on a daily basis today. He has held every position possible at a golf course and that experience has not only made him an effective leader within the family business but in the greater golf industry and beyond. He lives in North Hampton, N.H. with his wife, Nancy-Jane. They are both relishing their recent empty nester status but still can’t find the time to improve their mediocre golf games. Richard is a past President of the New England Golf Course Owners Association and current board member of both The First Tee of NH and the Alliance of Massachusetts Golf Organizations. Richard also co-authored Ecological Golf Course Management.
Co-Owner & Vice President, Sagamore Golf, Inc.
General Manager, Sagamore-Hampton Golf Club
Ty is also a fourth-generation Luff family member who has grown up with the family business and began working at the age of 14. Throughout his high school and college years, he spent his summers working with the Clubhouse & Grounds Crew teams at both Sagamore courses, and quickly developed a true appreciation for the family business and the great game of Golf. After graduating from Suffolk University in 1994, Ty knew that he wanted to contribute toward the future of the family business and joined the Management Team in 1995. He later became General Manager of Sagamore-Hampton Golf Club and joined Sagamore Golf, Inc.'s Board of Directors, and eventually became Vice President and Co-Owner of SGI in 2007. Ty has always thrived in the areas of customer service/relations, course design, business operations, and management, and has been instrumental in carrying out SGI's marketing and corporate identity efforts over the years. After nearly 40 years with the company, Ty still looks forward to each and every workday, and he's motivated by the same passion, work ethic, and vision that he proudly inherited from his forefathers. Ty and Richard have always shared a common vision for SGI, and their partnership has ensured that Sagamore's 95-year legacy will carry-on for generations to come. Ty is also an active member of the National Golf Course Owners Association, the New England Golf Course Owners Association, and the National Golf Foundation.
