Congratulations to Tony Steppich on being named the golf course superintendent at Rock Manor Golf Club in Wilmington, DE!
Tony came to PCC in November of 2012, prior to the Wissahickon restoration close period of 2013. That summer, Tony did an excellent job maintaining Militia Hill during a year when our entire membership was consolidated to playing the course. Following Wissahickon’s re-opening and gaining popularity Tony continued to do an excellent job maintaining Militia Hill. As regional and national events were scheduled on Wissahickon, Tony proved to be the ultimate team player in sharing resources to help PCC be at its best. We were thrilled to see in our 2015 member surveys that Militia Hill maintained equally high member satisfaction results.Tony exhibited consistent dedication to the club and served as a great mentor to our many assistants. We are excited to see Tony find continued success, and are happy for his family that his new position is so close to home.
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. Tony was the sixth superintendent to be promoted in such a manner in the last six 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.For those members who would like to congratulate Tony, we have placed a link to his email below.
