Jim Surico, senior assistant superintendent at North Jersey Country Club in Wayne, NJ, is admittedly a "glass half full" kind of guy. As such, when asked to name something he doesn't like to do on the golf course, he came up blank. "Ooh, I don't know, tough question... There really isn't anything I don't like to do, even dealing with members..."
Now THERE is a guy who is going to have a successful career as a superintendent.
Surico talks us through his career from Rutgers University to moving up from an internship to an assistant position at Baltusrol, before following Dan Kilpatrick from Baltusrol to their current positions at North Jersey Country Club. He credits Kilpatrick with being a great mentor and also fostering the fun, high-performance atmosphere that the staff at North Jersey enjoys.
