December 1, 2016 ~ Press Release from Bend Golf & Country Club
We welcome Scott Moffenbeier back to BGCC
With the retirement of long-time Superintendent, Tom Baty, Bend Golf and Country Club is proud to welcome Scott Moffenbeier as our new Course Superintendent effective January 1, 2017. This is a homecoming of sorts for Scott, as he worked as the Assistant Superintendent at BGCC from 1999-2004 under Tom Baty. Scott declared, “I am thrilled to be coming back to Bend Golf and Country Club as the Golf Course Superintendent after working here for six seasons. Playing a key role again at the oldest golf club in Central Oregon with its outstanding traditions has long been a desire of mine. I believe the Country Club is establishing itself as one of the elite equity-owned Clubs in the Pacific Northwest, attracting golfers and families to ensure a bright future.”
Scott has been in the golf course management industry for over 23 years, spanning six golf courses throughout Oregon, including most recently, as the Superintendent of Broken Top Club in Bend. One might ask why he would even consider making a career change at this time. “Returning to Bend Golf & Country Club to continue improving upon the excellent course conditioning and focus on the Master Plan established by Golf Course Architect Dan Hixson, The Board of Directors and the Management team, is the pinnacle of my career. Maintaining the integrity of the golf course and focusing on playability for all levels is vital for the future,” he says.
Scott and his wife Cathi have two daughters and live in Bend. Scott is a lifelong Oregonian, growing up in Milwaukie where he played Junior Golf at Pleasant Valley Golf Club. He has a degree in Horticulture with an option in Turfgrass Management from Oregon State University. He is a Class A Member of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, where he has been active in the association for over 20 years. Scott says, “I am driven to continually improve and I work hard to gain respect from members, fellow co-workers and my peers. I take the condition of my golf course to a personal level and take great pride in providing an exceptional golf course experience. The Superintendent’s role is a critical link in providing an outstanding club for its members and I’m anxious to get started at Bend.”
Member-owned, and a jewel in one of the nation’s prime golf areas, Bend Golf and Country Club boasts a pristine, very walkable, 18-hole tree-lined course that is open year round. In addition to the fine golf course, the club amenities include a complete pro shop and practice facility, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, pickleball, racquetball, a complete athletic facility, an indoor saltwater pool and hot tub, a variety of dining options, and an active, thriving, vibrant membership that welcomes new members to their family-friendly club.
Bend Golf and Country Club welcomes Scott Moffenbeier and his family – “Where you belong.”
