Pendleton, OR – Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience LP, announced the 2015 Plant Heath Academy class at the 2015 Golf Industry Show in San Antonio, TX last month. Among the new class is Sean Hoolehan, Golf Superintendent at the Wildhorse Resort and Casino Golf Course.
 
Hoolehan has been the Superintendent at Wildhorse Resort & Casino for the past 18 years. He has severed on a number of golf industry boards, including being the President of the GCSAA in 2006. Hoolehan is grateful to add this to his long list of accomplishments. “I am excited about being part of the Bayer Plant Health Academy. I look forward to sharing this knowledge and putting it to practice at Wildhorse Resort and Casino.”
 
The third annual academy is part of the Healthy Turf, Healthy Tomorrow program, an initiative Bayer developed in collaboration with Golf Course Superintendents Association of America’s (GCSAA) Environmental Institute for Golf to advance plant health research and education for superintendents.
 
“We are blown away by the high caliber of candidates we received this year,” said David Wells, golf business manager for the turf and ornamentals business at Bayer. “It says a lot about our industry that we have so many bright, ambitious, leaders, and we are proud of their commitment to continuing education and their passion to advance their knowledge of plant health and turf management.”
 
“This is a “Top Shelf” training, where I will get a chance to learn some of the latest methods in Turfgrass /Golf Course management,” said Hoolehan. “Learning is a life time proposition with the rapidly changing technology, regulation, and growing environment I work with on the golf course. It’s a real honor to be selected to participate with a very distinguished group of Golf Course Superintendents from across the country.”
 
While Hoolehan, the only member of the 2015 class selected from the Pacific Northwest, the talent runs deep throughout the Country. Other classmates include: Ryan Bourne of Andover, KS, Rodney Crow of Deer Park, TX, Jamey Davis of Birmingham, AL, Anthony Gustaitis, of Lafayette Hill, PA, Brian Haines of Boynton, FL, Nicholas Janovich of Wheeling, W. VA, Tray Maltby of Davenport, FL, Jay Neunsinger of Berkeley, CA, Brent Racer of Axtell NE, Alex Stuedemann of East Moline, IL and Jeff White of Mission Hills, KS.
 
Hoolehan isn’t the only member of the Wildhorse Golf Staff that was honored last month. The GCSAA and Lebanon Turf, named Rory, Hoolehan’s 6 year old Yellow Lab with Eastern Oregon bird dog breeding, Dog of the Year. Rory spends his days at Wildhorse Resort & Casino Golf Course chasing geese and hanging with his buddy Chip a 9 year old Golden Lab. Both dogs get special attention from Roger Hickman, Wildhorse Irrigation Tech. Roger (an Army Veteran) took care of Army Dogs in Vietnam as a Vet Tech. Rory and Chip team up to keep the geese on the move and the crew in good spirits.
 
Rory and Hoolehan donated the $500 prize to “Train a Dog, Save a Warrior” TADSAW (http://www.tadsaw.org/) which was the beneficiary of the contest. TADSAW trains service dogs for veterans. Rory’s donation will be used to train a dog for a Veteran in Oregon.
