Warren Golf Course Professional Maintenance Staff Team

In the three years leading up to the 2019 US Senior Open, the Warren Golf Course Professional Maintenance Staff selflessly dedicated themselves to ensuring the event was successful. The team took on numerous additional duties while continuing their day-to-day responsibilities for operating both the Warren and Burke Golf Courses.

The Professional Maintenance Staff served as liaisons among University departments, event staff and the USGA. They also assisted in planning structures to be located on the course premises, such as player locker rooms, the hospitality and media center, and USGA management spaces. These individuals planned and executed various construction projects, including a full rebuild of the entire driving range and practice facility, a full re-landscape of the entire golf course property, and coordination of all on-course construction, including over 40 temporary structures built exclusively for the championship.
We congratulate the Warren Golf Course Professional Maintenance Staff on their commitment to teamwork and for winning the Presidential Team Irish Award!
