Peter Jacobsen Receives the Old Tommy Morris Award

As many of you already know, Peter Jacobsen is the architect at Stone Creek Golf Club and is also a native Oregonian. Since Peter only lived a few miles for Stone Creek during the construction, we were able to spend quite a bit of time together as the course was built. This would not be standard procedure for a typical construction in that a high profile architect would charge thousands for additional visits to a course. Peter put a lot of time and effort into this project and it is apparent by the success this golf course has enjoyed.

I know first hand how great of a person Peter is, and it gives me great satisfaction to see that Peter will be the recipient of the 2012 Old Tommy Morris Award, presented by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America. Golf Course Management magazine has done a wonderful piece on Peter and is worth the time to read. Peter will receive the award at the Golf Industry Show this February in Las Vegas and what makes it all the more special is I will be receiving GCSAA's Presidents Award at the same ceremony. I will be looking forward to seeing him again. Congratulations Peter!
