Dave Ousterhout, Golf Course Suprintendent
David Ousterhout joined Omni Mount Washington Resort as Golf Course Superintendent in the spring of 2009. David obtained his Bachelor of Science in Agronomy, with an emphasis in Golf and Sports Turfgrass Management, at Mississippi State University before entering beginning his career in the golf industry. David brings to Omni Mount Washington Resort 11 years of experience as Assistant Golf Course Superintendent at three exclusive private country clubs in southeastern New England, including working as Assistant Golf Course Superintendent at the Country Club of New Bedford, MA, for the past five years before joining the Omni Mount Washington Resort.
David's strong agronomic, landscape construction and horticultural background combined with his significant experience in the renovation of two other vintage Donald Ross-designed golf courses to create an ideal match for Omni Mount Washington Resort, which reopened the Donald Ross-designed 18-hole Mount Washington Course for its first full season of play following a complete restoration by course architect Brian Silva in the spring of 2009.
David lives in Bartlett, NH, with his 4 dogs. David's family owned a vacation home in Bartlett for over 20 years before he moved to the area --- to what he calls, "the best of both worlds." An avid outdoorsman, David enjoys golf and being outdoors all summer, just as much as skiing, snowboarding and all the outdoor activities that come with the snow. In fact, he took his first ski lesson at Bretton Woods many years ago.
