PORTFOLIO

My portfolio contains information on all aspects of my career and shares my vision of how a course should be managed. The work of a superintendent is usually defined by how his course is viewed and played. This website allows you to virtually share in what I have seen every day on the course.

PROFILE SUMMARY

Class “A” Superintendent with track record of providing increased playability, fast and firm surfaces, and overall healthy courses. I pride myself on being highly effective at finding a balance between water, fertility, and chemistry to reduce overall inputs when necessary, focusing on the purity of the game.
