Thank you Peter Cavanaugh

Posted on Oct 26, 2020 |

Golf Course Superintendent Peter Cavanaugh began his career at Stafford Country Club 30 years ago. Over the years Peter and his crews have worked diligently to set up the course daily for members and guests to enjoy. He has worked with many different Boards and committees and has consistently continued to maintain and improve our beautiful course. Through the years, Peter has been involved in many capital projects, both on the course and around the facilities. He has assisted in the building and rebuilding of various tees and has also worked with the USGA and course architect to develop and create the various chipping areas around the greens. Peter has overseen several major drainage projects during his tenure and was instrumental in getting the current maintenance building constructed and put into service. He has helped to oversee the volunteer tree crews over the years, a group that continues to improve our course for the future. Most recently, Peter worked to get our new pump house and pump station installed and operational. Peter’s involvement in our numerous improvement projects has literally touched every acre of our course. His dedication and resourcefulness have kept our course and our facilities in superb condition. Peter has responded to any need on short notice and knows this property and its facilities better than anyone in recent history. And as we approach our 100th anniversary, he has placed our club in an excellent position moving forward to the next 100 years I am pleased to announce that the Board of Governors has approved Peter as an honorary member in recognition of his outstanding contributions and years of service to Stafford Country Club. Peter, we hope to see you out here enjoying the course and facilities that you have tended to for so many years. Please join me in thanking Peter Cavanaugh for 30 great years of service to Stafford Country...
