20 Aug CLUB APPOINTS NEW COURSE SUPERINTENDENT
The Warrnambool Golf Club (WGC) is pleased to advise the appointment of Brenton Clarke to the role of Course Superintendent.
WGC will welcome Brenton to the role in mid-September, who comes to the club from South Australia’s prestigious Kooyonga Golf Club where he worked as Golf Course Foreman.
Brenton brings more 13 years’ experience in turf management across a range of specialist areas including project management, course renovation and construction, landscaping, irrigation, soil science and plant pathology. Previously holding Assistant Superintendent positions at both Box Hill Golf Club and Blackwood Golf Club, Brenton’s passion for his trade has seen him perfect his skills at Melbourne’s sandbelt clubs including Kingston Heath and Royal Melbourne and abroad at Royal Automotive Golf Club in London and Scotland’s Albatross Golf Resort.
Currently studying his Bachelor of Agriculture, Brenton is passionate about the sports turf industry and looks forward to raising the benchmark in both presentation and performance at Warrnambool as the club prepares to implement its strategic objectives and new Course Master Plan over the coming years.
Club Manager, Ashlee Scott, says it’s an exciting time for the club as we welcome Brenton to the team.
“The club is fortunate to have had significant interest in this position and Brenton was a stand-out amongst the applicants. Not only does he have strong experience in turf management and course construction, but his passion for horticulture, course presentation and performance will be of great benefit to our team and the club.”
“I have no doubt that under Brenton’s guidance, our grounds team will continue to deliver a superior quality golf course that our member’s and visitors will benefit from greatly,” said Ms Scott.
WGC undertook an extension recruitment campaign in late July that attracted significant interest from a high number of outstanding applicants, following the resignation of David Warnaar, the club’s Superintendent for the past 8 years.
