Employee Spotlight: Bob Cline and Rick White

Bob Cline and Rick White win awards from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America Sierra Nevada Chapter.

Earlier this week, outgoing and longtime William Land Golf Course superintendent Bob Cline was inducted into the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America Sierra Nevada Chapter Hall of Fame.  For multiple decades, Bob called Land Park his second home and worked for both The First Tee of Greater Sacramento and Morton Golf managing the historic 9-hole golf course in the heart of Sacramento. It has been this area’s secret gem, a center-of-Sacramento attraction that has continuously had some of the best green surfaces in the entire region. Bob has decided to hang up his formal Head Superintendent role but will be helping out part-time in some projects here and there to keep his connection to the game. Everyone at Morton Golf owes Bob an enormous amount of gratitude for all the sweat and hard work that he’s put into our little community golf course over the years. His leadership and efforts have rewarded us all. 

In addition, Haggin Oaks Golf Complex Head Golf Superintendent Rick White won the President’s GrassRoots Award From The Sierra Nevada Chapter of the GCSAA.  Rick came to Haggin Oaks after a career overseeing courses up in the Redding area and his management has resulted in course conditioning that the course has never seen before.  Rick was honored among his peers for doing some of the best work in all of Greater Sacramento and beyond and we’re just so proud of his efforts- and even more to call him a key part of the Morton Golf family.

Congratulations to both Bob and Rick!
