As an adult, he was fortunate enough to live in Hawaii and take on the famed waves of Oahu's North Shore. .He has spent his entire career in the Coachella Valley after earning his Turf Grass Degree 17 years ago. His appreciation of the game of golf and passion for anything green has made him an outstanding expert in his field. He came to Mountain View in 2008 from Tahquitz Creek in Palm Springs where he was the Superintendent of the 36-hole facility for over 5 years. Dave will soon be an empty nester, as his 18-year-old son will be leaving for Arizona State University.
