Kershasky joins Reinders Inc.
For the past 37 years, Jerry has been the superintendent at Westmoor Country Club, a Championship 18 hole course in Brookfield, Wis. As superintendent he coordinated the effort in gaining membership approval and then supervising a major course renovation in 2008 that included an XGD drainage install and the fumigation and regrassing of greens. He worked closely with Lohmann Golf Designs of Marengo, Ill. to establish a sustainable course design. This renovation project was instrumental in lowering the annual golf course operational budget.
Over the years, he has worked closely with USGA agronomists including Bob Vavrek, Stan Zontek, Jim Moore and Bud White on agronomic problem solving and turfgrass best management practices. He is a past director of the Wisconsin Turfgrass Association where he directed the efforts of the Turf Diagnostics Lab and raised funds for research.
Throughout his career he has spoken at numerous industry conferences, most recently this past January at the Great Lakes Trade Expo/Michigan Turfgrass Conference. His presentation, “Hot Gas & Regrass” focused on fumigating greens and reseeding them.
Jerry looks forward to working with golf courses in the Chicago area and can be reached at 630-244-6477.
