“A perfect program in the home of American golf,” said Bud Hare when asked to describe SCC’s Golf Course Management program.

Bud is the Assistant Course Superintendent at Tobacco Road Golf Club in Sanford. He completed his studies at Sandhills in 2013

“Being able to learn under George Thompson is one of my most favorite memories. He is a legend in the industry.”

Bud worked in the cable industry before choosing a second career in golf, a sport he loves.

“I never realized how much hard work goes into maintaining a golf course,” Bud said. “I wish golfers knew, they would have more respect for the courses and those who care for them.”

Originally from Alabama, Bud is married with two daughters.
