Being able to manage construction and renovation projects is a key component of success as a golf course superintendent. Almost every course has some sort of ongoing renovation or master plan as time goes on. I have been directly associated with numerous projects both large and small, with in-house staff and hired contractors.
Several images are provided below that showcase the construction process.
While at both Bishops Gate and Sea Pines Resort, I have gained extensive knowledge and experience in all aspects of golf course construction. This involved direct participation with golf architects, irrigation architects, and project managers to help organize the logistics of a large-scale project.
Specifically at Bishops Gate, serving as Superintendent I directly led and oversaw a complete redesign of the course worth $3.4M. Working with architect Tim Liddy, we built 11 holes of golf utilizing multiple tees and large double greens allowing for play as 18 holes. I was also integral in the building of a new, state-of-the-art practice facility with a $1.2M investment.
At Sea Pines, the total project was $10M and came in within budget in 2007. Another $230K project was completed in 2009 that added tees and expanded greens.
