Staff Changes in the Golf Cousre Maintenance Department

Congratulations to Greg Willman, North Course Superintendent. Greg recently accepted a position as Golf Course Superintendent at Panther Creek Country Club in Springfield, Illinois.

Greg has worked at Des Moines Golf and Country Club since 2004. Greg originally started as the Assistant Golf Course Superintendent on the South Course and later moved up to the South Course Superintendent. He has been the North Course Superintendent for the last 2.5 years.

Greg will be starting his new role in February. You might recall that former DMGCC Golf Professional Matt Ruehling also went to Panther Creek a few years ago. Matt is Panther Creek’s current golf professional.

We wish the best to Greg, Amber and their family. Greg has done a wonderful job for us and we know he will carry that same quality and work ethic to Panther Creek.

Willman’s replacement on the North course will be Nate Tegtmeier. Nate has been working his way up through the chairs starting on the North as an intern in 2006, then on to 2nd Assistant and for the last 2.5 years he has been the 1st Assistant on the North Course.

Ty Boley will also be promoted from 2nd Assistant to 1st Assistant Superintendent. Ty had a very successful stint in the Marine Corps and then attended Iowa State University where he graduated with a Turf Grass Management Degree. Ty has been with us for the past 2 years.
