From zero golf experience to a head equipment manager position in a year-and-a-half: that’s just how Matt Leis rolls. Matt joins us from the Westin Kierland Golf Club in Scottsdale, AZ. While earning his bachelor’s degree in accounting, Matt got a taste for turf working for his local parks & rec department. After a quick detour in selling private jets, Matt turned his focus to the golf course where, like all of us, he got hooked on the sunrises. Matt built his skills as an irrigation technician, learned to operate heavy equipment, and threw his hat in the ring for the head EM job with less than two years in the industry under his belt. We get into the weeds on the first cut on overseed and have a whole lot of fun with spreadsheets and forecasting. Matt shares his passion for sports officiating, what that side hustle has taught him, and gives a shout-out to his dad who is a special education teacher.
