Steve Cook, CGCS MG: Conquering Ama Dablam

Peter McCormick


tent_400x400.jpegIn this episode of Me Maintenance, Peter McCormick chats with Steve Cook, CGCS MG, Director of Grounds at Medinah Country Club, about his life-changing experience climbing Ama Dablam, a 22,000' Himalayan peak in Nepal in 2016. Integral to the project was a fund-raising effort for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, for which Steve raised $35,000.

From the three years of mental preparation and physical training to the month-long trek and ascent itself, Steve recounts his motivations, personal desires, triumphs and satisfactions, mistakes made and lessons learned along with his changed worldview and perspective about life and the golf industry.

A fascinating conversation  with an individual who is always climbing higher in life. Steve was recognized earlier in the year as a TurfNet All Star of Turf.
