Super Shoutout

Sending our gratitude to the people that help make our sport a beautiful one!

Golf course superintendents are the unsung heroes of our industry. They beat the sun to work every morning to make sure the course you play is in the best shape possible. This year in particular, Texas courses have been in impeccable condition. So we asked TGA Members to thank their supers with a #SuperShoutout.

The results were overwhelming. We received more than 330 responses from golfers praising their grounds crews. We hope you enjoy the video below that highlights some of those sentiments. And to all the Supers out there, thank you for what you do.

Scroll down to see the full list of shout-outs we received for Superintendents across Texas.

KYLE BROWN – THE WOODLANDS COUNTRY CLUB – PALMER COURSE

During the COVID pandemic, the course continues to improve despite record rounds and cart traffic.” – Paul Earnest


KYLE CADE – PEARLAND GOLF CLUB

“We have the most amazing greens in the area!” – Joan Stine


KYLE EMBRY – GENTLE CREEK COUNTRY CLUB

“Without a doubt in my mind, Kyle has all of the traits of the best golf course superintendents that I know. First, the condition of the golf course is second to none. All the members here at Gentle Creek know only one thing, excellent conditioning of the golf course. As with most memberships they have no idea of what Kyle does, they only know the result of fast greens and well-manicured fairways. In addition, he stays in budget financially and motivates his small staff of 16 grounds crew workers to perform like 30 workers. When members are playing, Kyle has trained the staff to stop mowing, raking, etc., to allow the golfers to play without interruption. Kyle serves as a mentor to his assistant Mike Bates and has him ready to take the next challenge when it presents itself. The intangibles that Kyle has, really sets him apart from the pack. Primarily, he gets along with people. Most superintendents that I have worked with get into the grounds side of the business because they are shy or don’t really like being around people. Not Kyle, he goes above and beyond to interact with the membership while they are playing golf, in the clubhouse, parking lot or while we have member events. Second, he is always open to ideas, whether good or bad, and allows members to be heard. Kyle makes them feel like they have a voice. Finally, Kyle is a top-notch golfer. Kyle sees things not just from an agronomic perspective; he sees it from a player’s point of view. He plays golf with the members and they absolutely love having him around. Kyle is a true asset to the club!” – Brent Blackburn

That has not happened with the many Superintendents. with maybe one exception that I can remember. Right now, The Dye course is in the best shape I have seen it since I have been a member. Michael works long hours keeping our new greens in great shape. The rest of the course is also in the best condition for play ability of our Members regardless of their handicap. I hope he doesn’t leave but I would be a great reference for all of the excellent work he has done at the Dye Course here at StoneBridge Ranch C.C.

“A huge thank you to both Pat and his crew, not forgetting all the MCC staff who helped get the course back in shape for our members.

“In 2 short years Patrick has turned a very average, rough conditioned golf course from Tee to Green to un-mistakenly the best looking and healthy course South of San Antonio. At a minimum MCC is the best conditioned and healthy course in South Texas without a doubt. It is now paying dividends as our applications for Golf memberships are now being received at doubt the rate as before (in 2 short years). I honestly cannot imagine a more deserving Super than our very own Patrick Affolder. My only hesitation is that others will now be aware of Patrick and I don’t want to lose him!!… but he deserves to receive the recognition in front of his peers on a State level as well as his family to see. Ben Smith/MCC” – Ben Smith

“Patrick has done tremendous job keeping our golf course in great shape during a very difficult time. Covid-19 and Hurricane Hanna. Thank you for all you do!!!!” – Robert R. Garza

Dealing with severe water damage, fallen tree and their debris, Patrick and his crew were able to get the entire course open and playable in five days. It was no small feat. Mind you, this is with a crew of 13. Work continues, but the membership couldn’t be happier than when we opened the course. Patrick is a true ambassador to all the Golf Course Superintendents in the world. First one onsite and last one to leave. We truly appreciate him even if he is a Steelers fan.” – Mike Perez

“Patrick has made a huge difference at our golf course. It now looks well-manicured and very pro-like. The course has taken a completely different look.

Miller

“Patrick has done a great job with our course for quite a long time. I’ve been a member for 6 years and it’s been great. Greens are the best ones around the area.

RICKY PALACIO – BROOKHAVEN COUNTRY CLUB

“Ever since Ricky arrived, he has been on an improvement path to everything he encountered with improving our club. He has improved the grass on the greens to the point that all three courses roll true and smooth. The fairways are magnificently growing green and have actual lift when the ball sets on them. The roughs are well maintained and, in some cases even hard to find your ball the way it should be, when you’re off target. All I can say is that Ricky has brought a positive attitude and a great personality to his position. He goes out of his way to talk to the membership as well as engage in conversation and concerns about the course. Keep up the great work Ricky! You’re one of the best and I hope we get to keep you around for years to come.” – Tim Robbs

“Ryan Crump and his associates have done a tremendous job the past few years to bring back the Onion Creek golf course to the status it enjoyed when many of our Legends of Golf played here in the 70’s and 80’s. When I watched them play, I never thought I would be a member at this club and enjoy the condition of the club currently. Especially coming back from the impact of the various floods on this course. I do not know what other superintendents have done…but, I do know that Ryan has performed a miracle to bring this course back to a roaring life.” – Martin Benavides

This year has been a challenge with the high temperatures we are experiencing, and the course still looks amazing. Ryan is the best” – Eugene Sackett

He lost a wife and his best friend (dog) during his tenure and yet he still remains diligent and faithful to the Club. I do wish him the best happiness possible and hope in the near future he does find love again in both a new relationship and he at least has a new dog. We love Ryan dearly.” – Stuart Osantowski

Today we have 18 new greens, 9 refurbished greens, 27 spectacular fairways and roughs that are playable instead of the previous uncut leaves, sticks and debris. He’s enhanced the driving range, installed a new chipping green and added a practice bunker. He’s reworked the irrigation system and turned this into the best public course in North Harris County.

He is a fine man who works hard and strives to listen to his members and take action on their requests. Most recently he has double duty as he has kept one of our courses in great playing shape while managing an extensive project to the other replacing greens, tees and other parts of the course. He has worked long hard hours always with a smile and a great attitude. We are blessed to have such a talented and fine man at Trophy Club.” – Mario Vitale

STEPHAN RIGGS – LULING MUNICIPAL GOLF COURSE

“Riggs took over as superintendent the Luling Municipal Golf Course in the spring of 2019. The course was not in very good shape when he took over, and a lot of the equipment was not in running condition. Since he took over, he has retrofitted a crumbling irrigation system, and he has all of the equipment running. The course condition has improved dramatically. The greens, surrounds and tees are superior. The fairways are really good where they can be reached by irrigation. Riggs has made great strides with a limited budget. Our annual membership numbers have increased significantly, and our tournaments are drawing huge fields as a direct result of Riggs’ hard work. Our irrigation system is very labor intensive because its deteriorated condition requires running limited stations and changing out fairway sprinkler heads by hand. He is very dedicated, and he takes great pride in his work. Regulars and visitors alike are impressed with the improvement of our little muni since he took over. Great Job Riggs!” – Lembo Allen

“Tremendous improvement on greens and fairways since he became super 1.5 years ago.” – Don Watts

TONY MILLER – OMNI BARTON CREEK RESORT & SPA (FOOTHILLS, CANYONS, CRENSHAW AND LAKESIDE)

“We think Tony Miller is super! Tony joined us here at Barton Creek Country Club as our Director of Agronomy a little over a year ago. Not only have our playing conditions improved significantly, but he has also instilled a spirit of teamwork that has both the greens-keeping team and our membership working together to make our courses the best they can be. Tony has a big job. He is responsible for four courses spread out over central Texas, plus he must serve two bosses – the demanding members of our club and the guests of the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa. He makes it look easy. Tony had an immediate effect upon his arrival. Finding qualified staff can be a problem in big cities like Austin, but he was able to quickly build his team to full strength. His leadership has been exceptional and most of his original staff is still with him, despite the financial challenges of COVID-19. Tony has a disciplined approach to golf course management that has yielded very visible improvements in our greens, bunkers, and overall turf quality. His can-do attitude is contagious, and he has a patient communication style, whether he’s mentoring his superintendents or calming a disgruntled member. Tony was a key catalyst in setting up Barton Creek’s Greens Committee – a first for our club. The committee meets frequently, often on course, to discuss issues of importance to our membership. Tony is also a frequent contributor to the committee’s monthly newsletter, which has given us unprecedented insight into what it takes to maintain courses like those at Barton Creek. Tony’s work was under the national spotlight last year when Barton Creek hosted several major PGA of America events, including the Senior PGA Professional Championship and the Men’s and Women’s PGA Cup. The United States’ dramatic come-from-behind victory over Great Britain & Ireland in the 29th PGA Cup was featured on the Golf Channel. Our Foothills course looked great on TV and brought well-deserved recognition to Barton Creek and Tony. Tony has received widespread accolades from our membership. His influence has us feeling like we are a part of the greens-keeping team. On Tony’s informal “Divot Days” we join his staff to fill a few divots and then enjoy rewards from the grill and beverage cart. Tony, with Omni’s support, has made a real difference at Barton Creek. On behalf of our membership, we want to say Thank you, Super Tony! The Barton Creek Country Club Greens Committee” – Jerry Nemeroff

“Tony, our Director of Agronomy, is an incredible leader and his dedication and willingness to inflict positive change and culture at our facility have greatly improved our course conditioning and the membership has never been happier! Thanks Tony!” – Spencer Cody

TYLER ANDERSON – UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS GOLF CLUB

“Tyler has completely transformed the golf course since his arrival. One can eat breakfast on the fairways, get lost in the well-manicured rough, and not a truer roll on a green in Texas. Just when we think there is nothing more that he can do to refine the course, he comes up with something we never thought of. I.e. improving sight lines, carefully reducing vegetation in native areas or improving a slope around a green. To cap it all off, he is good stick and one great human being to be around. We are blessed to have him.” – Brad Stanton

“Tyler, thank you and your crew for the outstanding work to keep UTGC one of the top courses in Texas. LL” – Lee Loftis
