New Additions to 2014 Turf Care Team






The Priddis Greens turf care department is excited to welcome the following four individuals to the 2014 Turf Care team. Merv is new to Alberta and our Management team as he has assumed the position of Head Equipment Manager. Adam, Ben and Adam have had previous work experience at the club but their roles have been expanded for 2014.

Merv Lovie is a native of Manitoba who was raised on a farm in Holland, MB and he most recently resided in St. Andrews, MB. He originally worked with all types of machinery, including turf when he realized his passion for turf equipment. He then spent time with Toro doing outside sales, being a road technician and a heavy-duty mechanic. What brought him out west was a desire to “look after his own fleet of equipment instead of someone else’s”. Merv would like to thank everyone for the opportunity and stated if there is anything he can help you out with to drop by the shop or contact him anytime.

Adam Wutzke has worked here at Priddis Greens for 4 years and is now a key member of our team. Adam began working at Priddis Greens in 2010 following his second year studies at Olds College in the Turfgrass Management diploma program. Adam was born and raised in Cold Lake, Alberta where he began working at Grand Centre Golf Club at the age of 14. He is very passionate about the game of golf and enjoys playing as much as possible. His other passions include curling, snowboarding and hockey. Keep an eye out for him on the Raven golf course this year.



Ben Spencer is a native of Calgary and has been working in the Turf Care department at Priddis Greens since 2010. After two seasons at Priddis Greens, Ben decided to pursue a career in turfgrass management by enrolling in the turfgrass management program at the Pennsylvania State University. During his time at Penn State, Ben completed a six-month internship program at La Rinconada Country Club in Los Gatos, California. After graduating, Ben returned to Priddis Greens as an intern on the Raven golf course. In 2014, Ben is excited to be working as a foreman on the Hawk golf course.



Adam Boismier is returning for his second year at Priddis Greens after completing his Turfgrass Management diploma from Olds College. Adam was born and raised in Windsor Ontario, and became very passionate about the game of golf from a young age. After 3 years at the Fairmont Algonquin Adam knew that this was the career for him. As a former coach and goalie his other passion is hockey. This season Adam is very excited to be a foreman on the Raven golf course. Adam would like to thank everyone for this great opportunity, and to wish all members and staff the best for the upcoming season.
