Dear Friends of Lake Presidential,
Please join me in welcoming our new Superintendent!
Mr. Shawn Gill hails from Connecticut where he got his start in Agronomic Operations at Danbury’s well regarded Richter Park Golf Course. After getting his Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice at Penn State, Shawn graduated first in his class at the University of Massachusetts Stockbridge School of Agriculture.
Later he moved to Northern Virginia to accept the Assistant’s position at Manassas Park Golf Course in 1996. Promoted to Superintendent three years later, Shawn oversaw major improvements to the golf course when it became General’s Ridge Golf Course.
Handpicked to “fix Prince William Golf Course” in May 2010, Shawn led a team that truly transformed the playing conditions and reputation of PWGC. Prince William was recording 19,000 rounds of golf per year and later under Shawn’s leadership, the golfing public took notice of the markedly improved course conditions by playing 42,000 rounds of golf annually.
We are extremely excited to have him join our team at Lake Presidential, working directly with Billy Casper Golf’s Regional Director of Agronomy, Dan Evers. Dan knows Shawn has what it takes to overcome our current turf challenges in the next 90 days and beyond. “Restoring premium conditions and a fantastic playing experience for our members and guests is Job One for all of us. I know Shawn gets this. He’s a grinder who always gets the job done.”
