DOB:  September 10, 1982

Bio
James began his golf course maintenance career at the age of 13 at Oldham County Club and then as a seasonal worker at John Pitman in Hereford while in high school.  He knew then that a Golf Course Superintendent was his career choice due to a love for the game and the reward of participating in the maintenance and detail of a golf course operation.  Out of high school James went to Arizona and was hired as a spray tech /foreman at a 36 hole facility Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club.  During his time there he participated in preparing for Senior Tour major and the Senior Slam.  While he was in Arizona he began his education in Professional Golf Turf Management from Rutgers University.    James has been a golf course Superintendent ever since with most of his stint being in the Phoenix, Az.  During his career as a Superintendent he has provided high-quality playing surfaces to a wide spectrum of golf enthusiasts including daily fee guests as well as ultra high-end private memberships.  James has been married to his high school sweetheart (Tessa) since 2001.  They have 2 beautiful children Taytum (daughter) and Kyler (son).  He has been with the City of Amarillo @ Ross Rogers since February of 2011.
