The ability to manage golf course improvement projects is an important role of the superintendent. The golf course is an ever-changing environment and requires constant review and adjustment to maintain proper conditions.
I have had the opportunity to be associated with several renovations, and many smaller in-house projects as well. My wide range of experience in course construction gives me the confidence required to lead a club through any project they wish to complete successfully. Highlights include:
Master Plan Implementation
Worked with committees and board of directors on key aspects of complete master plan to restore Canal Shores.
Installation of pump lift stations that alleviated flood waters and mitigated turf loss and damage during frequent flood events.
Restoration of 86 bunkers in conjunction with golf course architect Jim Urbina.
River Streambank Stabilization
Worked in conjunction with consulting engineers and various local and national regulatory entities to eliminate erosion and provide a natural habitat for wildlife.
Club Infrastructure Enhancements
Construction of new golf shop, pool house, and tennis facility.
Green Construction, Short Game/Practice Area Design
Included construction of bunkers, chipping area and green as well as construction of USGA putting green.
