Course Superintendent Appointed

Marcus Hartup

The Brisbane Golf Club today announces the appointment of Marcus Hartup as its new Course Superintendent.

Marcus, who will start in his new role in early August, has had more than 30 years’ experience in turf management, and has worked as a course superintendent or Director of Agronomy in five different countries.

In his current role, Marcus is the Director of Agronomy at Vattanac Golf Resort in Cambodia. Marcus has also held senior roles at Brookwater Golf Club, Pacific Harbour Golf & Country Club, Abu Dhabi Golf Club, Saadiyat Beack Golf Club and The Els Club.

The Committee established a selection panel to review the applications received from across Australia and internationally. The panel comprised of Deb Kember (President), Andrew Mullis (Treasurer), Richard Garnham (Course Chair), Geoff Kuehner (CEO) and David Lunardelli (Troon).

Deb Kember said the selection panel prioritised finding a candidate with extensive experience in South-East Queensland and expertise in cultivating warm season grasses.

“Marcus was part of the team that led the construction and opening of both Brookwater and Pacific Harbour and in that period presented both courses in peak condition,” she said.

“He has gained further experience in turf management in the United States, Abu Dhabi, Malaysia and more recently Cambodia.”

“We are very excited to welcome Marcus to our team and look forward to seeing further enhancement to our course conditions for our Members and guests,” she said.

“I’m thrilled to be joining The Brisbane Golf Club,’ said Marcus Hartup.

“I see enormous potential and I will focus on the ‘one percenters’ initially to present a course that members can be proud of, all year round.”

Please join us in welcoming Marcus Hartup to The Brisbane Golf Club.
