About the Board

Philip Hill
My wife and I moved to Rancho Bernardo in 1994. Along with our two children we have spent a lot of time enjoying the great facilities of our club over the years. As a past board member and current member of the Architectural Committee my focus is on maintaining the clubs facilities and keeping our community the great place it is to live.
Lynn Maloney
RBSTC is a beautiful asset to our community! One of my first thoughts after seeing the club was “what a great place to raise a family!” My background includes: teaching 2nd grade; developed an Identity Program for Motorola Dealers Nationwide; Sales and Accounting for family business; Director of Operations for Nationwide Fundraising Company; currently retired and enjoying life!
As a past board member, I was President, Vice President and Secretary. I also served on the many committees including: Tennis/Pickleball, Guest Policy, Hiring Current General Manager and HR.
I recently celebrated my 47th anniversary, have two married daughters and four grandchildren that live in RB. I love spending time with my grandkids on the playground, pool and watching them play tennis. Now, most of my time is spent playing and growing the game of Pickleball in RB.
My focus is to be fiscally responsible and HR compliant, while maintaining a friendly environment for members, guests and staff.

David first came to Rancho Bernardo in 1976 with his wife and three children. With advanced degrees in both Chinese History and International Finance, David spent most of his career in Commercial Banking both here in San Diego and in the Far East.

Jill Schall
A lovely and well maintained RBSTC is a benefit to everyone in our community. I feel it is important to support this community asset and that is why I am running for this position. My parents were the first to move to this area and enjoy all RBSTC has to offer.  While spending time with my parents, I came to love the charming small town feel of Rancho Bernardo and ended up moving here as well.
A little bit about myself, I was born and raised in San Diego. I have been a deputy district attorney for over 25 years and have a great deal of experience collaborating and working with others to find solutions and make our community safer. This includes being a member of the San Diego County Child Abuse Committee, San Diego County Child Fatality Committee and San Diego County Probation Department’s Domestic Violence Committee. For relaxation, I enjoy swimming, hiking, traveling, cooking and chatting with my wonderful neighbors. I recognize it is essential to give back to the community in order to preserve the community you love. It is an honor to serve on the board.
Dave Hadacek
Dave moved to Rancho Bernardo in 1985.  Since 2007, Dave, along with his wife and daughter have lived in Greens West. They are avid users of the Club’s pool, gym and courts.  In 2016 Dave retired from Solar Turbines where he served as the Director of Engineering.  His 37 years of engineering, practical and strategic business experience has given him knowledge and skills to effectively serve on the Board of Directors.  Dave served on the Swim and Tennis Board of Directors from 2015 to 2021.  Dave was instrumental in improving the governance and operations of the club by helping the Board to adopt a formal Investment Policy that provides fiscally prudent and conservative investment guidelines, as well as updating all club employees’ job descriptions that provide clear responsibilities and accountabilities.  Dave has also assisted in many club improvement projects including eight Pickleball courts, room and pool refurbishments, as well as improved security systems.  Dave is passionate about giving back and currently serves on four other boards.  These boards work to meet the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities, bridge hearing and non-hearing worlds, improve church leadership training, and providing value based education opportunities to the underserved.
