Teaching Golf Course Design and Construction at Michigan State University:
As the instructor of Golf Course Design and Construction for the
Turfgrass Department at Michigan State University, it is a real pleasure to pass
on my experiences to future leaders in the industry. The students
experienced the thrill of golf course design, the nuances of specific
materials and the drudgery of cost estimating. Guest speakers include the golf industry's leading contractors, professionals and superintendents.
I will be teaching Michigan State University's design and construction to students in Beijing, China with the first class scheduled for 2012.
Times are changing in the golf industry. A number of our clients are adapting to the changing times by providing more inclusive recreational features to their courses. Country Club of Lansing is adding a shorter set of tees, providing an enjoyable round for more members. Country Club of Lansing is taking the lead in Michigan on the industry’s "play it forward" movement.

Cascade Hills Country Club is presently in the planning stages of a renovated practice facility which includes a lesson area, heated tees and a short game area. Beach Grove Golf & Country Club, Tecumseh, Ontario has a new practice range with a 9-hole short course in the future plans.
As our lives change and challenges within our industry continue on, many courses are looking for future golfers and providing existing players a new experience with prudent course improvements.
