Scott Mahr, Barnsley Gardens Resort's General Manager, Recipient of the Outstanding
General Manager by the Georgia Hotel & Lodging Association

ADAIRSVILLE, GA (March 9, 2010) – Barnsley Gardens Resort is excited to announce that General Manager Scott Mahr was named as an outstanding general manager by the Georgia Hotel & Lodging Association during the annual Stars of the Lodging Industry Awards on March 2, 2010.  
“It is such an honor for me to win this prestigious award,” said Mahr.  “I have been working at Barnsley Gardens Resort since the property was being converted into a resort, and I am excited to be a part of such a special place.”
Mahr joined Barnsley Gardens Resort in 1999 and served as the resort’s golf pro.  He worked his way to assistant general manager, and in 2005 Mahr’s passion for the property resulted in him being promoted to general manager.  Mahr encourages all of the employees at Barnsley Gardens Resort to provide quality service that exceeds guests’ expectations and inspires his team to become better individuals overall.  He has cultivated not only a strong employee base but a real sense of family among all the employees at the property.  Under Mahr’s direction, the resort’s revenue has continued to grow.  Even in 2009’s tough economy, Barnsley Gardens Resort was able to increase its leisure business by 19 percent.      
Mahr is also very active within the golf community, serving as a member of both the PGA of America and the Georgia PGA.  His other current board positions include the Georgia Hotel & Lodging Association, Cartersville/Bartow County CVB, and Advance Adairsville.
