Mark grew up in Spokane and went to the University of Idaho, graduating with an agricultural degree. He worked as a Superintendent for 15 years at Twin Lakes Village Golf Club in Rathdrum, Idaho. "We moved to Seattle 20 years ago when my wife got a good job opportunity," Mark says. He then went to work for Horizon Irrigation & Landscape, providing irrigation systems to all kinds of businesses, including golf courses. He and his wife raised their two daughters in the Seattle area. Now 55, Mark says he's at a point in his life where he can get back into the golf industry. "Golf is what I know," he says. "Just being around the game again is a great feeling."
Mark will be providing on-site logistical assistance for all championships and qualifiers conducted by the Association.
