Director of Agronomy
Steve grew up on Cape Cod in the village of Centerville, Massachusetts. He began his career in golf at the Oyster Harbors Club, designed by Donald Ross in 1926, coincidentally that it the same year that Metacomet was designed by Ross. While working at Oyster Harbors and advancing to the Assistant Superintendent position, he found his passion for golf courses and golf architecture and Donald Ross designs. Later Steve held Assistant Superintendent duties at Pocasset Golf Club and Cummaquid Golf Club on Cape Cod.
Steve’s first Superintendent position was at Worcester Country Club, where he worked for 13 years. During his time at Worcester numerous trees were removed, bunkers restored, and tees rebuilt. Construction projects included ponds, spillways, a new irrigation system, a pool, tennis courts and a railroad tunnel that was converted to a cart tunnel. Following Worcester, Steve served as the Superintendent at Rhode Island Country Club in Barrington for seven years. During his tenure, the club hosted 7 CVS Health Charity Classics and numerous State and Regional Tournaments. Over 1200 trees and acres of invasive brush were removed, creating a more links-like environment with the implementation of widespread fescue areas. Many new tees and shell cart paths were also constructed, clubhouse grounds were dramatically improved, mostly in-house, creating a more cohesive seaside landscape. During his career, Steve has been employed at six golf courses, five designed be Donald Ross.
Steve lives in Barrington with his wife Kay. Together, they have three children, Kay’s son Kevin, Steve’s son Spencer, and daughter Lilly.
Steve is thrilled at the opportunity to work with the staff at Metacomet Golf Club. He feels that these greens are among Ross’ best.
