Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas announces that Scott Abernathy is the new Director of Golf Course Maintenance and Landscaping at the acclaimed golf resort, which serves as host site of the annual HP Byron Nelson Championship, a PGA TOUR event. The announcement was made by Director of Golf Paul Earnest.
Abernathy served as superintendent at the 36-hole facility from 2001-2004 and left to pursue his doctorate at Texas A&M University. He partnered with Dr. Richard White and began a consulting practice throughout Texas specializing in bentgrass greens management. The portfolio included eight golf courses including TPC Four Seasons in 2008 after its redesign by Weibring Wolfard. Abernathy expects to complete his Doctorate in Turf Grass Physiology in December. During his studies, he designed and developed golf course management software that benefits organization and resource efficiency in golf course maintenance.
“I am excited to return to this outstanding facility,” said Abernathy. “I look forward to providing my leadership to the golf maintenance and landscape team and applying my expertise to the health of our most valuable assets, our TPC and Cottonwood Valley golf courses.”
Abernathy has previous experience both as an intern and as an employee of Bent Tree Country Club in Dallas. He received his undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science from Texas A&M University in 1995 and his Masters in Turf Grass Physiology in 1999. A native Texan, he is married and has two children. He enjoys playing golf and heads a church ministry group.
