General Manager Michael Solomons said that Adam’s qualifications and experience, as well as his long history with the Club, made him the ideal candidate for the role.

“Alongside his extensive experience at Royal Sydney, Adam possesses Diplomas in Landscaping and Turf Management, as well as qualifications in Operations Management with the Australian Institute of Management; Australian Graduate School of Management, UNSW,” he said.

“Adam also brings significant knowledge of the global turfcare industry, having recently spent three months working at Merion Golf Club, Pennsylvania. There he gained further understanding of turfcare at other world class sporting facilities, visiting 15 different golf clubs and working on the US PGA Championship and US Women’s Open.”

Adam will inherit the position from current Course Superintendent Steve Marsden, who announced his resignation in early October. The Club is greatly looking forward to Adam’s commencement as Course Superintendent in 2018.
