Kevin is currently the certified superintendent at La Rinconada Country Club. Kevin was the Director of Maintenance at Lahontan Golf Club for over 14 years. Some of the responsibilities over the expanse of his career include the daily upkeep of multiple golf courses, natural resources, environmental compliance, and roads and streets. The wide ranging expertise has come from a combination of education and experiences. Degrees in Meteorology (1987 University of Nebraska/Lincoln), and Horticulture (1992 Colorado State), complete the formal side of this important combination of qualifications. A lifetime of experience around golf courses, and the game of golf was provided by Kevin's father.

Stripes on the 2nd hole October 1. 17 days after starting to water.
Cutting the new grass has begun, just 17 days after turning the water on the seed.  Everything is cut at a low height to facilitate lateral growth of the new plant.  This will increase the density, which is especially critical on the sanded fairways.

The mulched areas are providing a nice contrast to the new grass. These areas will also reduce the time to mow around trees and clean up small debris from the trees.
