(LINCOLN, Neb.) – Landscapes Golf Management has named Chris Lewis, CGCS, as Director of Agronomy and Maintenance of the company that services more than 55 golf courses, country clubs and resorts across America.
Lewis will work closely with Landscapes Golf Management leadership, corporate support and field staff on golf course superintendent and crew hiring, best practices training, supplies and equipment purchasing, and other functions integral to optimizing golf course playing conditions and amenities maintenance. He will serve as a resource to regional golf course superintendents on business and technical activities, including capital planning, grow-in and renovation projects.
A 20-plus-year veteran of Landscapes Golf Management, Lewis started his career as a golf course foreman at Broadlands Golf Course in Broomfield, Colorado. He quickly ascended to Assistant Golf Course Superintendent, Golf Course Superintendent and General Manager before overseeing several of Landscapes Golf Management’s public, semi-private and private properties as Rocky Mountains Regional Superintendent. Lewis served on the Board of the Rocky Mountain Golf Course Superintendents Association and was President of the Rocky Mountain Regional Turfgrass Association.
“Landscapes Golf Management is very good to its people and that’s what I’m looking to build on,” says Lewis, a decorated member of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America. “More often than not, the No. 1 reason people frequent one golf course or country club over another is the level of golf course and amenity conditions – that’s where our company shines.”
“Chris Lewis is unequivocally the right person for the position,” says Tom Everett, President of Landscapes Golf Management. “He enjoys the ideal combination of personal relations, agronomic experience and business skills to advance Landscapes Golf Management’s innovation agenda.”
In the past several months, Landscapes Golf Management has added six golf courses and country clubs to its portfolio, and extended partnerships with eight others.
