Assistant Superintendent

Purpoodock Club is a private 18-hole golf-only facility that opened in 1922 and is located just minutes from beautiful beaches, parks and downtown Portland. The course has distinctive rock outcroppings and unique fairway contours. We manage bent/poa greens, tees and fairways at championship levels and have recently replaced most of the maintenance fleet with a new equipment package to help in that effort. We are just finishing a total bunker and tee renovation on the front nine, along with a rebuild of the first green, and phase one (of four) forestry management projects. The back nine bunkers were renovated in 2019, and the back nine tees and practice tee will be renovated in 2023 (No major construction in our centennial year, 2022). The club is investing heavily in capital improvement projects and equipment with some exciting changes happening in the years to come.
