The Meadows Country Club is undergoing a $1.2 million renovation to its private Meadows course, one of three 18-hole courses at the sprawling community. So golfers should get to know the Dave Johnson, who is in charge of the renovation. He began working in the turf industry in 1992, and started JGCC Golf N Sports Turf, Inc. Dave has excellent planning skills and experience as a golf course superintendent, which helps him create and revitalize golf courses that will deliver an exciting and rewarding experience. Dave has been playing golf for 52 years, and he wants to share his love for every aspect of the game with everyone who plays on one of the courses he has shaped.
Dave doesn’t approach his projects as an engineer or architect would. Instead, according to his son Dave who works with him, he is really much more of an artist. Dave doesn’t do complex drawings of each hole before he comes onsite. Dave was raised in Moline, Illinois, and graduated from Moline High School.
He was a mini-tour player in the Midwest and is a member of the Short Hills Country Club in Moline. His wife Valerie and his son Dave are both involved with the business, which is based in Ormond Beach, FL. Dave also has a daughter who is a dental hygienist in Moline.
