Stefan was born and raised outside of Albany, NY and started working on golf courses in 1992. He attended the State University of New York at Delhi and received an Associates Degree in Applied Science for Golf Course Operations. Following the advice of several well-known Superintendents, he decided to continue his education at Clemson University and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Turfgrass Management.
Early on in his career, Stefan knew he wanted to be part of a major tournament and was fortunate to intern at the famed Pebble Beach Golf Links. During that time, he was instrumental in the preparations for the 1999 US Amateur & 2000 US Open events. He then received an opportunity to join the prestigious team at Oakland Hills Country Club, which has hosted 6 US Opens, 2 PGA Championships, Ryder Cup matches and more.
Prior to joining the team at Treesdale Golf & Country Club, Stefan has been the Superintendent at Blowing Rock Country Club, a 1915 Seth Raynor designed course in the mountains of North Carolina, and most recently at our Sister Club, Diamond Run, in Sewickley Pennsylvania.
