BARRY BENNETT, CGCS
Please help us in welcoming Barry Bennett to the Redox Turf Team. Barry is based in Valdosta, Georgia and will be serving Redox Turf distributors in the Southeast US.
Barry grew up in Piedmont, Alabama (a small town in North Alabama). He graduated from Mississippi State University with a B.S. in Agronomy/ Turfgrass Management and started his 28 year career in the golf business while in High School. He worked at Mississippi State Golf Course while in college, and after graduating, went straight to being a Superintendent with IGM.
While with IGM, Barry was Superintendent at Bella Vista Golf and Yacht Club in Howey-in-the-Hills, FL and The Savannahs at Merritt Island, Merritt Island, FL. He had previously done an internship with Pinehurst Resort and Country Club while in college, and was called back in lieu of the 1999 US Open and was placed at Pinehurst #7. After Pinehurst, he returned to work with IGM to rebuild Glenwood Country Club in Old Bridge, New Jersey.
Tired of the cold, Barry left New Jersey and became the Superintendent at Valdosta Country Club where he has been for 16 years, before recently accepting a position at Redox.
