The Stewards of the Chesapeake
Monday, July 25, 2022
Country Club of Maryland
The Country Club of Maryland was founded in 1923, and commissioned nationally acclaimed golf architect Herbert Strong to lay out the course over 164 acres of land known as Stevenson Farm. The course was built during the golden age of architecture and remains as one of the few courses in the Mid-Atlantic area from that era. The golf course was completed in 1925 and featured a layout of gentle rolling terrain highlighted by streams and natural woodlands.
Mr. Strong's course now measures 6,460 yards and plays to a par 70. The Signature Valley Holes of 13,14 and 15 are as breathtaking and challenging as ever and remain the heart and soul of a demanding back nine.
The Country Club of Maryland features expansive fairways and a variety of approaches to greens that vary in size in direct proportion to the overall length of the hole. Old style bunkering and green swales further enhance both the challenge and beauty of this classic golf course.
Golf Course Superintendent
The Stewards of the Chesapeake event was established in 2000 by the MAAGCS to develop a primary source of funding to support local research projects, support environmental efforts, and government relations as they pertain to the golf industry. The tournament has also provided a great opportunity for MAAGCS members to invite their club or company officials to participate in the event for the preservation and improvement of both the game of golf and our environment. The tournament has raised over $250,000 since its inception, and proceeds benefit the Maryland Association of Green Industries (MAGI), various Universities, the GCSAA and other groups supporting environmental issues, such as the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
In 2017 the proceeds from the Stewards of the Chesapeake were used to help fund the Maryland Association of Green Industries. MAGI advocates on our behalf to help endorse the benefits of our industry with local, state, and federal legislators. In addition, beginning in 2018 the MAAGCS committed $25,000 over 5 years to The University of Maryland Turfgrass Pathology Research Fund. The purpose of this fund is to support turfgrass research infrastructure, such as campus labs and the Paint Branch Turf Research Facility. The fund also directly supports the turfgrass pathology position.

"Bending" Standards to Maximize your ROI
Joel grew up in Northern New York and received a degree in landscape architecture from Cornell University, always with a dream of building golf holes. For the past 24 years Joel has been developing renovation programs with McDonald & Sons and McDonald Design Group. McDonald's hands-on design/build approach has provided Joel the opportunity to develop new alternative construction specifications that maximize facilities' "bang-for-the-buck". Joel will review several of these strategies in his presentation.
