Oswego Country Club hires new restaurant, bar managers

Changes to corporate membership also announced

    Oswego Country Club recently hired local food and beverage professionals Ray Jock and partner Tammy Murphy to manage food and hospitality operations for the club, according to board president Matthew Bacon.


    Jock and his wife Kimberly own La Parrilla Grill and Wine Bar, and Murphy, who has worked in the restaurant-bar industry for over 30 years, have formed LaP&T@OCC, and began the management of all food operations effective April 1.


    The new partners take over for Chris Carpenter, who operated the club’s restaurant and bar for 10 years, until deciding recently to pursue other opportunities within the industry.


    “We are very excited to welcome LaP&T@OCC and staff to Oswego Country Club as our new restaurant and bar management team,” said Bacon. “Our membership greatly appreciates the efforts of Chris Carpenter and Chef Worth Lenahan for their commitment over the years, and are now looking forward to this new partnership.”


    As a chef of over 20 years, Jock has worked as a private executive chef, restaurant owner, and volunteer cook.


    Jock opened La Parrilla in Oswego after he spent many years working in restaurant management in New York City.


    Murphy, an Oswego native, has decades of bartending and management experience. She is well known in the Oswego restaurant community, and is an active volunteer for many local events, charities, and organizations.


    As a child, she worked in her family’s restaurant and has continued to develop her management and customer service skills ever since.


    “We believe our experience and resources bring a lot to the table for Oswego Country Club, their membership and guests,” Jock said. “It will be an exciting, new beginning for everyone.”


    “It starts with building a family between LaP&T and our staff, and providing a fun, happy environment, that in turn leads to a warm, successful experience for everyone,” Murphy added.


    In addition to welcoming the new restaurant management team, OCC has also restructured its corporate membership classification.


    This membership classification is held in the name of and paid for by a company or organization. Corporate membership allows the company or organization that holds the membership up to 50 18-hole rounds of golf at OCC, cart included, for employees and guests.


    Tee times arranged through the pro shop are required.
