The Links Department at Marine Drive is pleased to announce the hiring of Mr. Ben Zlotnik, effective December 17th, 2019.
With Dain Mikulic’s promotion to Associate Superintendent, Ben will report directly to Dain and work closely with Golf Course Superintendent Jamie Robb. Ben’s primary area of focus will be on leading the many seasonal staff members within the Links department. Training, ensuring quality control and balancing staff member productivity with golfer disruption will be key accountabilities for Ben in this role.
Ben is a Vancouver native who graduated from Kwantlen Polytechnic University with a diploma in Turfgrass Management in 2017. His work experience in the field of turfgrass management is varied, having worked at golf courses and sports fields throughout greater Vancouver, in Toronto, and in England.
Jamie notes that “Having worked with Ben at Capilano Golf and Country Club, I’m confident Marine Drive is getting a great individual who has the leadership qualities, determination and professionalism to succeed in this position”.
In addition to managing turfgrass, Ben is passionate about volunteering his time coaching PeeWee football as he has done for several years with the Vancouver Westside Warriors.
