BRETTON WOODS, New Hampshire — Mount Washington Resort, located in Bretton Woods, NH is pleased to announce the hiring of David Ousterhout as the Resort’s new Golf Course Superintendent. The Golf Club at Mount Washington Resort offers 27 holes of championship golf, including the newly restored 18-hole Mount Washington Course and nine-hole Mount Pleasant Course.

David Ousterhout obtained his Bachelor of Science in Agronomy, with an emphasis in Golf and Sports Turfgrass Management, at Mississippi State University before entering beginning his career in the golf industry. Ousterhout brings to Mount Washington Resort eleven years of experience as Assistant Golf Course Superintendent at three exclusive private country clubs in southeastern New England, including, most recently, working as Assistant Golf Course Superintendent at the Country Club of New Bedford, Massachusetts, for the past five years. Ousterhout’s strong agronomic, landscape construction and horticultural background combine with his significant experience in the renovation of two other vintage Donald Ross-designed golf courses to create an ideal match for Mount Washington Resort, which has recently reopened the Donald Ross-designed 18-hole Mount Washington Course for its first full season of play following a complete restoration by course architect Brian Silva.

Matt Massei, Mount Washington Resort’s General Manager who spent 15 years managing golf operations at Pinehurst, North Carolina, before joining Mount Washington Resort, has been working closely with Michael Carroll, Director of Golf & Club Operations, and David Ousterhout to prepare for the golf season. “David has really hit the ground running after the long winter,” said Massei, “We are very pleased that we were able to find someone with David’s background and experience as we continue to raise the level of golf at Mount Washington Resort. It’s great to have him on board.”

David Ousterhout has relocated to Bartlett, New Hampshire, with his wife Krystal and two dogs. Ousterhout’s family has owned a vacation home in Bartlett for over 20 years, and the move brings Ousterhout to what he calls, “the best of both worlds.” An avid outdoorsman, Ousterhout enjoys golf and being outdoors all summer just as much as skiing, snowboarding and all the outdoor activities that come with the snow. In fact, he took his first ski lesson at Bretton Woods many years ago.

The 18-hole Mount Washington Course, recently rated New Hampshire’s #1 public golf course by Golfweek, opened on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, 2009, as did the nine-hole Mount Pleasant Course. Season pass options are available as well as a selection of overnight packages at Mount Washington Resort’s variety of lodging options.
