Primary Job Category:

Golf Course Superintendent

Secondary Job Category:

Assistant Superintendent


Experienced superintendent looking for a course. My experience is primarily with bermuda grass. Also have experience with reconstruction and renovation.

Iíve been in the golf course industry for over 30 years. Started on a very small crew doing everything there was to do, learning all the way. Became superintendent in 1990 and have worked for just about every type of golf course; private club, daily fee, corporate owned/leased, municipal. Done it all from course maintenance, irrigation repair and installation (2 complete systems), Course renovation and reconstruction. Iíve grown in over 60 greens throughout my career. Installed drainage, built and filled in bunkers, even designed a few holes. Obtained pesticide licenses in all the states Iíve worked.

One of the favorite parts of my job is interacting with the golfers. I enjoy getting immediate feedback from the players. I get a feel for what the members want, and then I strive to deliver. I donít shy away from constructive criticism; I use it to present a better product (or service).
