Former GCSAA Board Member Joins National Staff
John Walker named GCSAA South Central Field Staff Regional Representative


John Walker joins the GCSAA staff following four years as director of golf course maintenance at Bentwater Yacht and Country Club in Montgomery, Texas. He also served as the golf course superintendent at Blackhorse Golf Club in Cypress, Texas; and Shadow Hawk Country Club and Houstonian Country Club in Richmond, Texas. Walker was chosen from a field of many quality candidates for the job, who went through a rigorous interview process.

John Walker, who has been a golf course superintendent in Texas for the past 30 years, has been named the field staff representative for the South Central region of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA).

"I am thrilled to join the GCSAA staff and be able to share my knowledge and passion for the profession with other superintendents in the South Central region," said Walker. "GCSAA is undertaking some exciting and important initiatives, and I look forward to helping implement those valuable new member services and programs with superintendents from Arkansas to New Mexico."

Walker has served on numerous national committees and was in his second year as a GCSAA board member, a position he has relinquished with his hire as a member of the association staff. Walker is also a former president of both the South Texas GCSA and the Lone Star GCSA, and he served on the board of directors of the Texas Turfgrass Association.

Beginning on June 1, Walker will be the GCSAA liaison for affiliated chapters in Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas. GCSAA has nine regional field staff members who maintain direct communication with 98 affiliated chapters.

Walker has a bachelor of science degree in agronomy from Texas A&M University. He and his wife, Sharon, reside in Magnolia, Texas.
