Jay Geise can hardly wait to see how Hobble Creek Golf Course will look, now that a new irrigation system is in place. He’s also proud to look back on a year of challenges created by the combination of an antiquated system and the ongoing installation.
The Utah Section PGA’s award for Superintendent of the Year among public facilities “means a lot, not just to me, but to our team that kept the course operating at a high level this season,” Geise said. “We found our motivation by preparing the course for everyday play and catching glimpses of what Hobble Creek will look like and play like in future years.”
Geise’s Section award follows his 2020 recognition from the Utah Golf Course Superintendents Association. He has worked for five years at Hobble Creek, after moving from Riverside Country Club.
