Crystal Springs Golf Course, Superintendent Powers, Recognized For National Environmental Award
from: February '12 issue of Golf Course Management Magazine
"The first time that Tim Powers, CGCS, gave his mother, Pamela, a tour of Crystal Springs Golf Course, she got an eyeful.
"Eighteen deer on the 18th fairway," Tim Powers says about that day several years ago. "I told her that I got to look at something like that every day. I've gotten to watch the deer grow up. It's great. That's why I always have a camera with me. You never know what you will see."
Those who judge what Powers has accomplished at Crystal Springs GC - a public course located in Burlingame, CA., 15 miles south of San Francisco - certainly like what he has done with the place.
Powers, a 24-year member of GCSAA, was chosen the national public and overall contest winner in the GCSAA / Golf Digest 2011 Environmental Leaders in Golf Awards, presented in partnership with Syngenta and Rain Bird..."
