Kirk Lee | President

Back in the summer of 1997, Kirk and his family moved to Mesquite from Seattle to help run the sales and marketing team at Si Redd’s Oasis Resort. When the property sold in 2001, Kirk moved over to the golf course operations.

In 2007, Kirk took a hiatus from Mesquite and moved to Las Vegas. In July of last year, he, with his fiancé, Petra, moved back to Mesquite to assume the leadership role at the golf club. “I knew someday that I would be back. This is my family’s business and I have a real responsibility. I also love this place!”

Kirk has a son, Dylan, who lives in Minneapolis and a daughter, Hanna, who lives just outside of Denver.


Michelle Arnett, CPA CGMA, Controller

Michelle Arnett | CPA CGMA | Controller

Michelle recently moved to Mesquite for the mild winters, escaping the extreme cold and snowy winters of Gunnison, Colorado. After passing through Mesquite one time, she fell in love with the mountains and small town atmosphere. Mesquite was the perfect choice because of its many golf courses, as well as its close proximity to entertainment and an international airport.

Michelle received a Bachelor of Arts in Accounting from Western State Colorado University. She became a CPA in 1997 and has worked as an Accountant for over 26 years.

Michelle’s husband is Jeff, an Air Force veteran. Their son Ben is an active duty Naval officer and daughter Shawnda is an Army veteran pursuing a nursing career. Michelle has one grandson, which she hopes to visit often. She also has a dog and a cat.

Michelle loves pickle ball and is eager to lower her golf handicap. Look for Jeff and Michelle on the course or riding their RZR in the desert. Be sure to wave and say hello!
