On Tuesday, Certified Golf Course Superintendent Shane Miller of Iron Lakes Country Club spoke to students on the differences between the public and private sector of golf courses in America. Shane is an alumnus of Penn State, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Turfgrass Science in 1999. Shane has worked his way up through the industry as an Assistant Superintendent at Downingtown Country Club, Waynesborough Country Club and Saucon Valley Country Club. He then moved on to becoming a golf course superintendent at Tumblebrook Country Club, Berkleigh Country Club and presently Iron Lakes Country Club in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
One of the main points Mr. Miller made in his presentation was that you should never stop bettering yourself, your education, or your resume. He touched on his recent accomplishment of becoming a Certified Golf Course Superintendent, and how the education does not stop even once you achieve your degree! Penn State Turf Club thanks Shane Miller for taking the time out of his schedule to come speak to us!
