WHY PINECROFT ENTERPRISES?
After graduating from from Penn State University in 1963 with a degree in Civil Engineering, I worked as an Engineer for a couple of years. In 1968 My father and a family friend, called upon me to help them layout and refine the design of PINECROFT GOLF COURSE. I joined them in a business partnership and we opened our course located in rural, Bradford County PA, in the Spring of 1972. While we were developing Pinecroft, I fell in love with the game of Golf. I became a PGA Golf Professional in 1983 and a class A GCSAA Member a few years later. Since then, My wife Linda and I have owned and or managed PINECROFT as well as 13 other small business Enterprises.
As a Designer and Construction supervisor and have earned the respect and friendship of several Architects and worked on a variety of projects in the eastern USA and as far away as Malaysia.
My experience as an Entrepreneur includes being Owner/Operator of several Golf related businesses and a variety of Non-Golf enterprises, including Retail stores, a Scuba Diving School, Exotic Travel manager, two Inns, two Restaurants, a Day Spa, 3 Hair Salons, 2 Cocktail Lounges, Real Estate Development, Sales and Management, and a two year stint as CEO and Head designer for SELECTGOLF a company that Designed Range/Practice Facilities and manufactured Range and Ball-Handling Equipment.
My resume also includes serving 16 years as Pennsylvania Representative and Director of the NGCOA. (National Golf Course Owner's Association) I have been a Director and Officer of the Central NY Section of thePGA and a Director of the GCSAA (Golf Course Superintendents Assn. of America) National Committee for the Growth of the Game of Golf.
About 15 years ago I began writing articles in business publications and serving as a speaker at a variety of Business conferences, particularly in the Golf Industry and after several unsolicited inquiries, I began my career as a consultant to Small Business and the Golf Industry. My unique set of skills evolved over more that 35 years of formal Education and hard knocks in the real world. I am happy to engage anyone in preliminary talks about your project or operation.
