The Topeka Country Club (TCC) would like to congratulate Leo Pellant, Golf Course Superintendent, on 35 years of service at the Club.
On August 12, 1979, Leo started his career at The Topeka Country Club as Assistant Golf Course Superintendent. He had recently graduated from Kansas State University with a B.S. in Landscape Horticulture with an emphasis in Turf Grass Science. In 1997, Leo was promoted to Golf Course Superintendent and has been serving TCC at that capacity ever since.
In celebration of this accomplishment, TCC presented Leo and his wife, Keven, with an all expense paid trip to Italy to mark this special achievement.
When asked about this milestone in his career, Leo recalled, “One of my favorite things in the job has been working with the different kids who’ve come through. I have worked with two generations of families and have seen many go on to become doctors, lawyers and very successful in their endeavors. Time has flown by in the blink of an eye. Topeka has been a wonderful community for my wife and I. I’m happy to say I’ve had no regrets in those 35 years.”
At TCC, we are honored to have been Leo’s place of work for the past 35 years and would like to thank him for his hard work and dedication to the Club. If you are interested in learning more about what TCC has to offer, please call (785) 354-8561 for membership information.
