Through this long career I have had the pleasure of leasing a golf course for 20 years, building a golf course in Purdy, WA, owning a golf course in Sonora, CA, and now teaching this great game at North Shore Golf Course in Tacoma, WA. I have spent many hours with some of the best known people in the golf industry learning from their seminars, clinics, and personal times together.

Learning the skills of operating all types of golf facilities, and learning many techniques on how to teach the game of golf has been a big part of my career. The journey has been very rewarding, and I will continue promoting the game as long as I have the opportunity. I have had the pleasure of being awarded the following awards n the Pacific Northwest: Merchandiser of the Year, Bill Strausbaugh Awards, and the Horton Smith Award.
