KEY PERSONNEL

Jim Schumacher functions as company President while managing the Bangkok, Thailand office. He founded Aqua Turf International in 1996 after a diverse and successful career in golf. He developed his love for golf as a teenager, and was the 1974 Arkansas State High School Golf Champion. As a result, he chose to make golf his career and prepared with a Bachelor of Science degree in Turfgrass Management from Mississippi State University. After school he started his career as a pro/superintendent at two clubs in Alabama and was a member of the Dixie Section of the PGA. After working as both a pro and superintendent he decided to focus his career on the turf side of golf. He acquired his construction and maintenance skills as the Deputy Director of Parks for the City of Huntsville, AL. In that role he became a Certified Golf Course Superintendent and was responsible for renovating and operating two 18-hole public golf facilities, twenty-eight parks and over 100 athletic fields. Also, he directed the installation and operation of the first computerized irrigation control system designed for parks in the eastern United States in 1985.

These experiences gave him a complete perspective of golf course construction, maintenance and operations. Mr. Schumacher expanded his irrigation knowledge during a seven-year career as southeastern sales manager for Rain Bird Golf. While in that position Mr. Schumacher was directly involved in golf irrigation sales, field service, training and product development. Mr. Schumacher has broadened his irrigation knowledge as a certified irrigation designer, licensed Texas Irrigator and as a member of the American Society of Irrigation Consultants.

Mr. Schumacher’s experience as a golf professional and certified golf course superintendent are significant benefits in helping design quality golf course irrigation systems. The irrigation system design and operation has a tremendous affect on the playability of a golf course in addition to turf quality. A commitment to quality and excellence is a trademark that has followed Jim Schumacher his entire career.
