Bob Kurlander con Tennis Through the Eyes of an “Old Pro” (English Edition)TURNING TENNIS PRO:
I was a very young Tennis Pro in the late 1940s with jobs at the Mountain Ridge Country Club, NJ and the Mayfair Inn, Stanford,
FL. I was not satisfied with my income.
I was offered a lucrative job with the Gilman Paper Company, New York City, NY that required my moving to Montgomery, AL to promote and sell a packaging machine that filled chemicals into multi-wall kraft bags, manufactured by Gilman.
I had a lot of success with this marketing venture and was moved back to the New York office. A career with Gilman looked good with an excellent pension for my old age. BUT, my love for TENNIS changed everything!
My brother, Jack convinced Playboy Hotels International that his Great Gorge Ski Area was a great place to build a hotel that they were planning. He suggested I renew my Tennis Life by accepting the Director of Tennis with Playboy. My Tennis Career was back on track - which my book deals with.
