Motivated Superintendent with high expectations; skilled in all operations of golf course maintenance and renovations.
Please check out my personal website for more information.
In 2004, I started working at Bay Point Golf Resort in Panama City Beach, Florida. I started at the bottom of the ladder. Over the next 13 years, I served under, no less than four superintendents. Through work ethic, dependability and willingness to accept responsibility, I eventually became a 1st assistant. Then, January of 2019, I became a Superintendent. at St. James Bay Golf Resort, in Carrabelle, Florida.
I am now looking to expand my experience with another property. I have excellent people skills, as well as computer, agronomic, weed and pest knowledge.
I recently sold my golf course and retired to Florida to play golf and enjoy life. What a mistake ! Taking care of a golf course is my passion and I really miss it. My golf course was an 18 hole mom and pop operation. In other words I had to learn how to do everything. I kept my course in excellent shape with a very limited budget, it was my money! I want to get back in the game to do what I'm very good at, taking care of a golf course.
Golf Course Superintendent with over 24 years industry experience, more than 16 as Assistant Superintendent or Superintendent Experience. Advanced knowledge of Agronomy and Golf Course Operations. Years of experience at a private club delivering top notch playing conditions. Highly skilled in all areas of course management, creative and enthusiastic, with extensive knowledge of agronomy and a strong work ethic. I enjoy working in this challenging and dynamic industry. Looking for my last interview where I can utilize past experiences to build a strong career, and strive to lead my new team to the next level.

To Whom It May Concern:
It has come to my attention through indeed.com that you are accepting applications for an Operations Manager.
As you will see by my resume, I have been in the turf management industry for over 15 years and have a wide variety of training and experience in a number of high profile golf courses. In my current position, I am responsible for the City of Orlando Parks.
In addition to my experience in turf management, I am a son of an Arborist and as such I have an in depth knowledge of trees and their care. I started working with my father at the age of eleven and knew then that I wanted a career in Horticulture.
I am confident that my experience and skills would be an asset to your organization and I would be pleased to meet with you to further discuss my qualifications and learn more about this opportunity.
To whom it may concern,
I am planning on moving to the Houston, TX metro area and plan on furthering my golf course maintenance career there. I have some experience working in Houston with the Golf Club of Houston. There, I worked with then Superintendent Randy Samoff preparing the course for the Shell Houston Open during the years of 2011 - 2013.
Currently, I hold a Superintendent position at an 18 hole municipal course in the Buffalo, NY area. Here, I have specialized in bringing the course from deplorable conditions into on of the top ranked courses in the Western New York area in just five seasons with a limited crew of 6 and a limited budget as well.
I have experience working with both high budgeted courses/clubs with ample staff and also courses/clubs with extremely limited budgets and staff. My goal is to improve course conditions while staying on a strict budget. I have accomplished this at with my current position by taking knowledge from a high budgeted course and implementing the priorities at my current course. Also, rewriting the chemical program, prioritization of the laborers jobs, and adding 8 acres of "nature areas" on the course that are out of play which we no longer need to maintain at such a high level.
Furthermore, I am very familiar with being my own mechanic and understand the need for a well rounded superintendent who is familiar with all aspects of golf course and clubhouse maintenance.
I am looking forward to moving to the Houston area. Please contact me with any questions you may have about my resume or past job history.
