Golf Is My Passion and Livelihood
Taking up the game at fifteen, I loved everything about it. Demanding both skill and discipline, I relished the challenge the game offered. In those youthful years, all I wanted was to play the game well.
As I grew older, I could imagine nothing better than golf as a career. I spent eight years learning all aspects of golf course maintenance and construction first as an assistant, then superintendent. After securing a firm foundation in both areas, I began an association with a national design firm in 1986, responsible for the firm's West Coast expansion contributing on sixteen courses.
In 1991 I established my own design firm and five years later had a workload that required a staff of eight. I began visiting many of the legendary courses in Great Britain and here in the States, inspiring me to take a more critical look at my work. I made the decision to reduce the size of my staff and limit my workload to only three commissions per year.
