So when you hear him talk about George Bush, The White House, President's Cup and Wimbledon, you could be forgiven for thinking he's a globe trotting, city slicker. Nothing however could be further from the truth. Pat is certainly a well experienced greenkeeper and his journey around the world with the Ohio State Program gave him all the overseas and greenkeeping experience anyone could ask for. Always grounded by his family, upbringing, country life and a life mantra of treating people how you want to be treated, Pat has boomeranged from an apprentice greenkeeper at Pambula Merimbula, around the world and back to Pambula Merimbula, this time as Superintendent. This is a great story of what greenkeeping has done for Pat and in my opinion what Pat has done for the local area of Pambula Merimbula. Pat has ensured that the golf club is a way for young people to gain experience in a work place environment and also a place to start a career in greenkeeping if they choose. He also leads the maintenance team that work hard to present the golf course of Pambula Merimbula in top condition for the locals and visitors of the magnificent NSW South Coast. Plug your ears in for this one and by the time you've finished listening you will want to book your next holiday at Pambula Merimbula and drop in to say hi to Pat.
