Pat Miller Named Superintendent at Hawthorns Golf & Country Club

We are excited to inform PCC members that Wissahickon Superintendent, Pat Miller, has recently accepted the Golf Course Superintendent position at Hawthorns Golf and Country Club, in Fishers, Indiana.

Pat joined PCC in January of  2013, as the assistant superintendent of the Wissahickon course.  Pat came to PCC from Crooked Stick GC to be part of the historic restoration project on Wissahickon.  He played an integral role during the project, and made sure the course was in championship condition before the grand opening.  This included overseeing construction of the new patio at the Flourtown clubhouse. 

Pat and his wife, Michelle, who most of you know from the golf shop, are looking forward to going back to the Midwest and being closer to family.  If you are ever in the Indianapolis area, please look up Pat and Michelle! We thank Pat for all of his hard work and sacrifice during his time with PCC! 

We also wanted to be sure to thank PCC members.  Whether reaching out to your personal contacts, or helping perform mock interviews, PCC members have always played an integral role in helping our superintendents become their best and achieve their own positions.  Pat was the 5th PCC superintendent to be promoted  in such a manner in the last five years.  This form of positive turn-over helps PCC to continue to recruit top talent from across the U.S., which in turn, continues to help our courses constantly improve.

In 2015, we are fortunate to be hiring from within as Andrew Goehler will assume the Wissahickon Superintendent position.  Andrew played an integral role during Wissahickon’s restoration, and was previously the Golf Course Superintendent at St Martins during the restoration project that saw St Martins transformed into the course it is today.

For those members who would like to congratulate Pat, we have placed a link to his email below.

Congrats Pat!
