Meadowlands Golf Club has a new course superintendent.

Jasper native Tyler Whitfield has more than 25 years of experience in the industry, and brings to the role the “expertise and experience to handle whatever comes his way,” according to Meadowlands marketing co-ordinator Lindsey Rutsch.

“Growing up on the links, thanks to his father and grandparents, golf was less of a game as it was a way of life,” she said. “His love of the sport and his attention to detail led him to the superintendent career path.”

Whitfield’s golf career began when he was just seven. At 14, he won Jasper Park Lodge Golf Course’s junior club championship.

Rutsch said Whitfield’s appointment would provide a “new and fresh asset” for the course.

“From maintaining mature courses, to the construction of new ones … Tyler has made a name for himself in both public and private courses throughout Alberta and British Columbia.”
