Staff Profiles

Mark McCormick
Golf Course Superintendent
Penn State University 1992

After graduating from high school I spent the summer working on the grounds crew at the Penn State University golf courses. I loved working on the golf course and that fall I enrolled in Penn State's agronomy program. While attending college I spent my summers gaining valuable work experience. I spent a summer maintaining the turfgrass research plots at Penn State. Another summer in Denver, Colorado working at Castle Pines Golf Club and a summer in Atlanta, Georgia at Settindown Creek Golf Club. After graduating from Penn State in 1992 I was hired by Huntsville Golf Club as the second assistant superintendent. The golf course had just begun construction and I started out working with the contractors installing drainage, laying sod and putting in the irrigation system. In a few years I was promoted to the first assistant and then in 1999 I was promoted to golf course superintendent. I live in Dallas, PA. I am married to my wife Janel and we have two daughters Payton and Tyra.

Casey Sheehan
Assistant Golf Course Superintendent
Penn State University 2005

Casey began his career at Huntsville Golf Club working summers on the grounds crew while attending Wyoming Seminary.  Casey enjoyed working on the golf course so much that in 2001 upon graduating from high school he enrolled in Penn State's four year turfgrass management program.  While attending Penn State Casey continued working summers at HGC.  In his senior year, Casey participated in an internship program at TPC Jasna Polana in Princeton, New Jersey.  After graduating from Penn State Casey took a job at TPC Jasna Pollana.  He continued working there until 2007 when he accepted an opportunity to return to Huntsville Golf Club as an assistant superintendent.  Casey lives in Plains with his wife Tiffany and their daughter Riley.

Chris Wargo
Project Manager/Equipment Technician

Chris began his career at Huntsville Golf Club in 1992 working for the construction company that built the golf course.  Chris's first day on the job found him on what would be #6 fairway picking up basket ball sized rocks and throwing them into piles.  Chris didn't give up though and he quickly moved up the ranks.  He was soon using bulldozer's and excavators to build bunkers, install drainage and seed and sod the golf course.  Once Huntsville was complete, Chris traveled around the nation building and renovating other golf courses from Indiana, to Maryland, to Texas, and New York.  In 1994 Chris returned to the area and was hired by Huntsville Golf Club.  Chris's valuable experience makes him a great asset to Huntsville Golf Club.  Chris lives in Shavertown with his wife Mary and their son Christian.
