About our Founder
I have been conditioning golf courses for 25 years. During that time, I have been fortunate to work at some of the world’s greatest golf courses with some of the most celebrated Superintendents, Architects and Builders who have ever worked in their respected professions. It was these experiences, along with my time spent studying the teachings of the great master architects of the ‘Golden Era,” that helped shape my foundational expertise as a Golf Course Superintendent. I learned that each property has its own individual identity, created by the many variables that make up its individuality. Determining the best possible approach to highlight its unique features through exact maintenance standards, while ensuring environmentally sound programs are employed, is a combination of art and science, where art formulates the vision, and science institutes the plan.
Good Work Is Hard & Hard Work Is Good
My love for the game of golf and environment is well conveyed by my dedication to both through leadership opportunities I’ve pursued within various highly regarded golf associations. As a highlight, I spearheaded the development of the New York State Best Management Practices initiative which received acclaim among New York State regulators and legislators and has helped give the game of golf a prominent voice in New York state government at a time when the pressure to create exceedingly restrictive environmental legislation has become the predisposition. This initiative has also received a high level of national acclaim within the golf industry and has served as a model for other state led BMP initiatives throughout the United States.
