Through my extensive experience in the golf industry, I possess the management and agronomic skills necessary to deliver a quality golf course on a daily basis to your patrons. I have proven experience and a reputation for providing membership just that, excellent playing conditions. I also have an enormous amount of knowledge regarding golf course construction due to numerous projects, including in-house renovations with limited budgets all the way up to full-scale rebuilding.
During my tenure at Glen View Club, I worked aggressively to transform the course and it became one of the best maintained golf courses in the Chicago area. I made a name for myself by producing tournament conditions on a daily basis. I believe that the golf course should improve constantly and that philosophy drives my decision-making daily.
After Glen View, I moved to a very different facility than my previous experience, Canal Shores. It was rewarding to work with the community in transforming the course into a local treasure, driving community golf as well as junior golf in an urban environment. My passion and ability here led to me accepting my current superintendent position at the Odyssey Golf Foundation, which serves the community also, particularly veterans and their families. I am excited for this new role.
I am confident in my professional talents and strive to advance my career as a turfgrass professional for others committed to excellence.
