Geoponics welcomes technical sales rep in South Florida
Meet turfgrass growing expert Jeffrey S. Burgoyne, the newest member of Geoponics Corporation.
Jeffrey Burgoyne is a Certified Golf Course Superintendent who accepted the position of technical sales representative with Geoponics on Jan. 24, 2012.
He will be a great asset in South Florida, providing answers to turf growers’ and golf course superintendents’ questions about the technical challenges they face.
“My previous superintendent experience will help me serve my customers better by being able to answer technical questions on the spot and not always refer them somewhere else for answers. I understand the everyday pressures that superintendents are under to provide optimal playing conditions and I am passionate about working with them to help solve the agronomic challenges they are facing,” said Jeffrey Burgoyne.
As superintendent at The Club at Twin Eagles in Naples, Fla., Jeffrey Burgoyne earned the 2008 Environmental Leader in Golf chapter award from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (gcsaa.org) and the Environmental Institute for Golf (eifg.org).
His understanding of the relationship between the environment and the golf course industry is a great asset to Geoponics as well to their future and current clients. Experience taught him that stewardship didn’t always have to come at the expense of a great playable course.
“I had been using several of the products from Geoponics for the past several years with tremendous results and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be a Geoponics representative when I was offered,” Jeffrey Burgoyne said.
“I have a passion for beautifully manicured turf that began at the age of fifteen when I began working in this field. I knew from that time this business would be my career.”
He has nearly 20 years of experience as a golf course superintendent in Florida, ranging from courses in North Florida, including Ocala Palms Golf Course and The Links of Spruce Creek, to South Florida, including Bonita Bay clubs as well as Heritage Bay Golf and Country Club in Naples.
When he’s not talking turf he’s covering lots of ground in triathlons and, when time allows, on his motorcycle. He completed his first full Ironman in November 2011.
He’s extremely hard working and lives by the motto of treating people as he would want to be treated.
Jeffrey S. Burgoyne, CGCS.
