Keith Bennett grew up in Central New Jersey with golf courses being a big part of his life from early on. He decided to pursue turf management as a career, obtaining a degree in Turfgrass Science from Penn State University and later continuing his education at Monmouth University with a Masters in Business Administration.
He has worked at various clubs throughout New Jersey and achieved the status of Certified Golf Course Superintendent from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America while at Charleston Springs Golf Club in Millstone Township, NJ. Keith moved to the sales side of the turf business after accepting a position as a Technical Sales Representative with Grass Roots Turf Products, a premier turf care distributor in the region. He has stayed active with the New Jersey Golf Course Superintendents Association of New Jersey (GCSANJ) and is currently the Treasurer for the GCSANJ Foundation, the charitable arm of the GCSANJ focusing on education, research, and charity.
Outside work in the Green Industry, Keith can be found with his wife and two kids hiking, camping and spending some quality time off the grid.
