Bring on the Heat
Brett Bentley (pictured here) welcomes the pressure that comes with maintaining a golf course in one of the top-100 “best” lists.
Bentley is golf course superintendent of Pikewood National Golf Club in Morgantown, W.Va., which is No. 45 on the Golf Digest top-100 list. It takes honors for the top-rated course in the state. When Pikewood opened in 2009 after nearly a decade of construction, Golf Digest named it the best new course in the country.
It's Bentley's job to help the course maintain its ranking and even go higher.
"I took the job knowing how much pressure there would be," he adds. "I hold myself to very high standards."
What about you? Would you welcome the pressure of maintaining a top-100 course or rather not deal with it?
