Dewees Island Welcomes POA Staff Member Justin Ornduff

Please give Justin a warm welcome when you see him on the island!

Dewees Island welcomes our newest POA staff member, Justin Ornduff. Justin comes to Dewees with extensive groundskeeping experience. He held various maintenance positions while working at Appalachian Ski Mountain in Blowing Rock, NC. He then began working at Boone Golf Club in Boone, NC. Justin and his wife, Paige, moved to Charleston in 2012 when Paige started law school. After attending Rutgers University for Professional Golf Turf Management, Justin accepted an Assistant Superintendent position with Kiawah Island Golf Resort. During his free time, he enjoys fly fishing and skiing(snow). He is excited about helping with conservation efforts while maintaining an ever changing landscape.


The Annual Tom Alexander Fishing Rodeo was established and headed by an island resident, Tom Alexander, around 1996.
Island residents continue the rodeo tradition each year to experience the thrill of fishing and enjoy the beauty of our island!

“The Rodeo is a great way to bring different owners together for fun and fellowship, even if the fish do not cooperate.”
– Jim Mack, member of Mack Attack Team
