Jon comes to us with a strong background in golf course management. Jon graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Turfgrass Science. Penn State is widely known to have one of the top turf degrees in the country. After college, Jon became the assistant superintendent at a Top 10 public golf club in Pennsylvania. He was then quickly promoted to his first superintendent’s job at an 18 hole facility where he honed his craft for a few years before accepting another superintendent’s job at a top 36 hole facility in the Pittsburgh area.
At Schriner’s level of expertise, he knows how to nurture a top-playing surface while using a minimal amount of fertilizers and pesticides. The best grass is watered just the proper amount to avert an environment for disease. Not only does this practice conserve water, it uses fewer chemicals and allows for healthier grass and wildlife. Jon recognizes that there is an artistry to properly growing grass on 218 acres. Protecting it while hundreds of people walk and drive on it daily, is a delicate science.
We are honored to have Jon as our Superintendent.
