Continuation of Consultant Spotlight Series

Mark Woodward, our featured consultant this week, comes from a family that has been in the golf course business for almost 100 years. He brings over 50 years of golf course experience to GSI in the consulting and search role.

I asked Mark for some of the memories outside his daily work life that come to mind. Most notably, he attended the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open, PGA Championship, and the Ryder Cup – all in person and all in the same year! He also was named by Golf Inc. Magazine as one of the 35 most powerful people in golf.

Mark is a very accomplished individual, and we at GSI are fortunate to count him as one of our successful principals.

Please read more about Mark below.

All my best,

Jay Salem
