Bill Nance heads the entire cart staff. He hails from Baltimore, Md. and lives in Beulaville. Bill retired from the Marines after serving as Finance Chief, 2 tours as a Drill Instructor and as a Trainer in Officer Candidate School. Bill and his wife keep busy with their two beautiful daughters and, of course, their grandkids. When meeting Bill you will quickly learn that Bill “loves golf” and when the little ball needs a rest Bill takes the big ball for a roll, because Bill also “loves to bowl”. Bill’s proudest accomplishment was becoming a Christian. Bill has an associate degree in Golf Course Management and is now working on his greatest desire, getting his card to become a Golf Pro.
Larry grew up in Huntington, West Virginia and received a degree from Marshall. After school Larry went into the Army for 9 years. He was still pursuing his destiny when he got accepted into the Utah School of Medicine where he graduated as a Physician Assistant. That position led to many stops across the states, working in Arizona, Kansas, Florida and North Carolina in ER medicine. In his last North Carolina stop, he reunited with a friend from the past which led to marrying Carol just two years ago. Carol was a key factor in the decision to settle down, along with the fact that his family expanded to 4 grown kids and 5 grand children. He retired from Southeastern ER Group Physicians in Wilmington where he had worked for 7 years. Larry's role at River Landing is perfect, as it gives him a 3-day a week work commitment (Wed., Fri., and Sat) and a place to golf. He will make sure your golf game will get off to a good start.
