Dave Ward has returned to the team after graduating from
the Rutgers University Professional Turf Management Program.
He will be an Assistant Golf Course Superintendent and we are
excited he will begin his management career with the Club!
You may recall Dave was an intern with our staff last season.
With several great improvement projects slated for this year and beyond,
Dave states he will be able to “gain valuable field experience that will
benefit his trek in becoming a golf course superintendent.”
Dave was awarded two scholarships while as an intern for the Club.
He received $1,000 awards from the Philadelphia Association of Golf Course Superintendents (PAGCS) and Rutgers University Turfgrass Alumni.
Perhaps last season or this winter, you may have seen Dave’s Bernese Mountain Dog running aside his golf cart. Cesar was awarded the month of December, 2017, for the Dog Days of Golf 2018 Calendar. Dogs are selected by representatives of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) and LebanonTurf. Attendees at the Golf Industry Show, held this past February in San Antonio, can vote for their favorite pooch. The winning owner “will receive a $500 prize and $3,000 for his or her GCSAA-affiliated chapter. A $2,000 charitable donation will also be made by GCSAA and LebanonTurf in honor of the winner.”
Although Cesar did not come out on top this year, what matters most is that he is a pretty cool pooch with a great personality!
