Landon White - Copper Rock Golf Course, Hurricane, UT
I was born and raised in Utah. Left for 2 years for an LDS Mission. Then chased the dream around for 2.5 years as assistant superintendents in Wyoming and Nevada. Other than that, I have been here in Utah…. So, 25 years.
I love the challenge of all 4 seasons. Plus, it’s close to family.
Why Southern Utah???? It’s far enough away from family! 😉
Originally from Cache Valley (Wellsville).
Moved around after graduating school. Gillette, Wyoming & Mesquite, Nevada.
I was drawn here as an Assistant Superintendent because I wanted to learn from Riley Stottern as we grew in Copper Rock Golf Course. I wanted to be the muscle of the operation and let him be the brains. He was going to retire after opening the course and hand over the reins. I worked here for a month and Riley had a heart attack and passed away. I never wanted to grow in a course. All I had ever heard about grow in superintendents was that they always got ran off after they were done. I don’t want that for me, but I sure as shit wanted to finally become a superintendent after being an assistant for 5+ years. So, when they offered the job, I took it and never looked back. I love the knowledge and experience I have gotten here and hope to be the superintendent here at Copper Rock as long as I can.
Country for sure. I pretty much refuse to go to St. George now unless I have to.
There is no other hobby or interest that I have that is bigger than my job. I love what I do. I also love just hanging out and making memories with my family. I grew up playing baseball and rugby. Can’t find any adult rugby teams around here so I stick to old man softball now days. I’m sure my wife appreciates that I don’t play rugby now days. I love to hunt but haven’t had much time since my mission. Hoping to get back into it and get my kids involved in it in the coming years. I love to hike and drag the family with me.
I love to golf, I’m not super good, but I manage to play as good as the people I play with. Handicap is my swing but some say it’s a 10. I try and play golf once a week, but I’m a fair weather golfer usually so I play 9 hole rounds probably 40 ish times a year.
I like to watch the NFL. Don’t really have a favorite team. I do however love me some Jazz Basketball. I watch almost every game. I inherited that from my grandma. I don’t follow college sports.
I tend to shy away from interesting situations, but off the top of my head I can think of 2.
Graduated from Rutgers at the top of my class with a 2-year certificate in 2015.
Have a wife (Kirsti), 3 kids (Skye, Jaxon and Chip) and a dog (Divot).
