On Tuesday, Andrew Green spoke to Penn State’s Turf Club on what he does for a living and how to be successful. Mr. Green is a golf course architect that is climbing his way to the top. After receiving two degrees within 5 years in Turf Management and Landscape Architecture from The University of Virginia, he started his career by working with McDonalds & Sons Golf Course Construction. After years of gaining experience for himself he decided to branch off on his own and create his own company called AH Green Design, Green Golf and Turf, Inc. located in Baltimore, Maryland. Since then, he has worked on many notable golf clubs around the United States including Whitemarsh Valley Country Club, Huntingdon Valley Country Club, Saucon Valley Country Club and more. His most current renovation is of Inverness Golf Club.
One of the main points made in is presentation is the time he has put into his work over the years. This is because he spends a lot of time researching each golf clubs history before his renovations. He believes that if he can find the roots of the golf club he can use that as inspiration for green and fairway renovations without sacrificing the playability of the hole. Andrew Green has been recognized in articles from Golf Course Architecture, Golf Week, and Golf Digest just over the past year. Penn State Turf Club thanks Andrew Green for taking the time out of his schedule to come speak to us!
