His professional experience includes having served as golf course superintendent for both Collier's Reserve and Naples Grande, where, among many duties, he has worked with the implementation and administration of the Audubon International Signature Sanctuary program.

In 2012 Bill served as President of the Florida Golf Course Superintendent's Association and was part of the team that developed the nationally recognized Golf Course Industry Best Management Practices Certification Program.
Bill is excellent at keeping the membership informed about the golf course. He provided a blog during the course renovation which was so popular, especially with the seasonal members who couldn't see the renovation progress firsthand, that he now provides an ongoing social medial outlet for anyone to be able to keep up with what is happening around and on the golf course.
