Being a successful Golf Course Superintendent
Being a successful Golf Course Superintendent is not a job; it's a way of life, ongoing dedication, and my passion. In preserving a club's traditions and protecting its distinguished history I pledge to maintain the golf course to superior standards. I will develop a sound plan and make sure my crew works alongside me to plan our work and work our plan for results beyond compare. We will never do it easy and make sure we do it right, constantly adapting to weather, seasonal changes, equipment issues and player expectations. We will work with the resources we are given to produce the best possible playing conditions day in and day out.
...he possessed all the attributes of becoming the exemplary superintendent you see today. Stephen always had the desire and skills to be a golf course superintendent at any prestigious club...
I have known and worked with Steve on a professional basis for the last 12+ years while implementing and updating the Wheatley Hills golf course masterplan.
