Originally from Colville, WA, Sam was not an avid golfer growing up. He attained his bachelor’s degree from Eastern Washington University 2003, where he was introduced to golf and fell in love with the sport.
Sam gained experience around the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene areas, caddying, working on a turf crew, and at an indoor driving range. When he moved to Western Washington he spent many years working at The Golf Club at Hawks Prairie in Lacey and at Indian Summer Golf & Country Club in Olympia. In 2017 Sam became the 10th Head Golf Professional in Alderbrook’s rich history.
Sam attained his membership in the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) in 2012. Working with newcomers to the sport, helping them learn the game so that they can enjoy the fun and rewarding aspects of being on the course is one of Sam’s main passions.
Sam’s favorite hole on Alderbrook is the 18th hole. He loves the way that the Olympic Mountains frames the green. He says the 18th hole offers a challenging approach to the green that rewards a well struck shot and is a fantastic finish to the course.

Chad grew up outside Walla Walla. He moved to Mason county in 1982 and studied at area colleges looking for his path in life. He worked in an office and realized being stuck inside all day just wasn’t for him. In May of 1989, Chad began working for Alderbrook Golf and discovered a passion for agronomy.
Starting on the lowest rung of the ladder, Chad worked seasonally. Learning all he could, he worked his way up to a full time position. In 2002, Chad was named Green Superintendent.
Chad wakes up every day excited to get to work, maintaining a vision of excellence for his team and staying ahead of the turf conditions. He describes the course at Alderbrook as a living, breathing entity that needs great care and attention.
