Kyle Ackerman Bio

For the last 7 years of my life, I have been managing turf ranging from top 100 golf courses to home lawns. I went to Delaware Valley University which is where I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Turf Management. My graduation from DelVal (Doylestown, PA) has led me to Southern Maryland. A little far from my hometown in New Jersey, but I managed on my own taking care of the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, a minor league baseball team in Waldorf, MD. I was the Head Groundskeeper for the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs for 3 years. Before that, I was in an intern at a top 100 golf course in New Jersey and worked at a nearby country club when I was not in the college classroom.

My most recent turf experience was in the lawn care industry. So you can say I’ve done it all in the turf industry; home lawns, professional baseball and some golf courses. When I’m not living and breathing turf all day, I take to time to relax with my wife, Sonya and my 5 year old dog, Jayda. They are my family now and I enjoy hiking, vacations and just plain hanging out with them.
