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.



The Matthews family has been immersed in all facets of the game for golf for ninety years. The family history was highlighted by a nice article in the Lansing State Journal recently.


Watermark Country Club, Grand Rapids has expanded the clubhouse and outdoor special use area to meet demands of the members and patrons. The short game area, waterfalls and formal event area project is being overseen by superintendent, Steve Tedhams.


Rochester Place Golf Club, Belle River, Ontario was recently purchased by Paul St. Pierre. He has major plans for the course increasing the challenge for the better golfer with a greater variety of shot values. The planned renovations also incorporate the changing golf trends as the casual golfer is provided a highly valued experience. With an eye to the future, the construction is guided by Guy St Pierre.
