CommuniTEE is a Core Value for FlyingTee
Once upon a time, many moons ago, every Christmas, my brother and I were shuttled around Oklahoma City by our Mom to visit families in need. A successful entrepreneur in her own right, Karen Vollbrecht (our Mom) took her time to volunteer regularly at the Hope Center (https://hopecenterofedmond.com/) and, every year, before we opened gifts from Santa, we struck out to deliver basic necessities and gifts to families. We didn’t throw gifts in a donation bin, and we didn’t just send a check; rather, we visited the families in person. We visited them at their house, apartment, duplex, or homeless shelter. We learned to appreciate the opportunities that we had. We learned that helping others is its own reward. We learned that we could make a huge difference in the lives of fellow Oklahomans.

Michael Adair, Private Event and Group Sales Associate, has worked his way up through several roles within the FlyingTee family. Having begun at the very point where our visitors are first greeted, our Guest Services desk. Adair is no stranger to all it takes to create the ultimate guest experience from the warm welcome through to the fond farewell.
“Work like you don’t need the money. Love like you’ve never been hurt. Dance like no one is watching,” by Satchel Paige is his favorite quote and truly embodies how Adair thinks outside of the box to create WOW experiences for each and every client or guests who visit FlyingTee. When asked what he does at FlyingTee words like illuminate, enthusiastic, entertaining, successful and experience were key components of how he described his role.
While originally a local lad, from Sand Springs, he has spent time on both the East and West coast in his life, proudly supporting his team, OU, from coast to coast. With a unique sales career from a group sales member for a professional baseball team, to a wine rep in California, Adair’s positions have “allowed (him) to not only sell but successfully create event experiences and unique ways to have fun while achieving (his) goals!”

Sean Dolan, our Director of Event Sales, joined the team July 2017 and there is simply no stopping him. In fact, Sean’s favorite quote is “What do you do when you fall down? You get back up.” With a career in the customer service industry through one avenue or another; 20+ years as a golf professional, roles in project management and planning/hosting fundraising events, he has still found a way to raise three wonderful kiddos with his beautiful wife in the Broken Arrow area, where he himself grew up.
When asked what he does here at the ‘Tee, Sean replied that it is “our job to help our guests have a first-rate event while at our facility. We want our guests to relax & let our staff provide them with first class service and a fantastic experience in an atmosphere that is fun, exciting and leaving people wanting to come back again and again.”
