Assistant Superintendent





Founded in 1908, Whitemarsh Valley Country Club is a traditional, member owned private club with 700 members (410 golfing), gross revenue of $10 million with a $1.9M operating grounds budget. The 18-hole golf course designed by George C. Thomas hosts approximately 22,000 rounds of golf played per year with approximately 13,000 of those rounds being cart rounds.  The main Clubhouse, which includes member dining facilities, banquet space, staff offices and pro shop, underwent an extensive renovation in 2018.  

In 2012, Whitemarsh Valley hired  Andrew Green to design a Master Plan for the golf course.  Several holes in the flood plain were reconstructed to allow for better drainage. (Elevating/crowning of fairways, sub-surface drainage, barrancas etc.) All bunkers were reshaped, multiple green expansions were installed to bring back to original design.  A selective tree management program was implemented as well creating stunning vistas and promoting better turf health.

Current and planned capital projects on the golf course include bunker renovation, creekbank restorations, putting green construction, fairway/rough re-grassing and new irrigation system.  Annual capital budget for equipment and projects is $500,000. Majority of the greens are poa/bent "push-up" with xgd drainage installed.  There are 5.2 acres of greens/approaches and 28 acres of fairways and tees.  Our Grounds staff consists of 10 full time employees and 10, forty week employees.
