The Warrnambool Golf Club has announced the appointment of Brenton Clarke as the clubs new Course Superintendent.

Brenton will commence in his new role in mid-September, and comes to the club from South Australia’s prestigious Kooyonga Golf Club where he worked as Golf Course Foreman.

Turf management

Brenton brings more 13 years’ experience in turf management across a range of specialist areas including project management, course renovation and construction, landscaping, irrigation, soil science and plant pathology.

Club Manager, Ashlee Scott, says it’s an exciting time for the club as we welcome Brenton to the team.

“The club is fortunate to have had significant interest in this position and Brenton was a stand-out amongst the applicants. Not only does he have strong experience in turf management and course construction, but his passion for horticulture, course presentation and performance will be of great benefit to our team and the club.”

“I have no doubt that under Brenton’s guidance, our grounds team will continue to deliver a superior quality golf course that our member’s and visitors will benefit from greatly,” said Ms Scott.
