Finding reliable summer help is often a challenge for us--the hours are crazy and the work is hard. That is why we are very grateful for having a solid group of young men this year. One unique thing about our 2017 team is that we have three brothers working together.
Entering his third season at Laurel Creek, is oldest brother, Joe. He is a graduate of Ursinus College and now working as a teacher in the Moorestown school district. Joe was a stand out performer for us two years ago, when he relentlessly pushed a blower during our August aerification.
Youngest brother, Mike, has returned for a second season. He has completed his freshman year at Virginia Tech. and will be majoring in Engineering. Like his brothers, Mike is a strong, consistent man on the team.
Middle sibling, Luke, is here for his first season, but has picked things up very quickly, and does an excellent job with the bunkers. Luke is an Environmental Sciences major at Rutgers, and will be receiving internship credit for his experience on the golf course this summer.
Given their varied career paths, you might wonder if these siblings share any common interests? Rumor has it, there is at least one thing they have all enjoyed during college: Rugby!
Whether it is Luke banging out bunkers, Mike laying down some razor-like lines on greens, or Joe terrifically triplexing tees, these guys are a real asset to the Laurel Creek team.
If you happen to see them (or any of the staff members) on the course, please feel free to give them a thumbs-up if you appreciate their efforts. Honestly, that quick, simple gesture can make someone's day during these dog days of summer!
