Salish Cliffs hires Pearsall new superintendent for course

Updated: August 30, 2010

Salish Cliffs Golf Club – the latest amenity of the Squaxin Island Tribe’s Little Creek Casino Resort – has named industry veteran and Washington native Bob Pearsall as Head Superintendent.

Pearsall, born and raised in nearby Olympia, officially started his new position last month at the par-72, 7,300-yard Gene Bates-design that is scheduled to open next spring. Selected among top talent in the Western Washington area, Pearsall has a reverence for Bates and the Squaxin Island Tribe’s reputation in the community.

“There’s no place I’d rather be,” said the 43-year-old Pearsall. “It’s a dream come true to be part of something special like this right in my own backyard.”

Pearsall comes to Salish Cliffs from The Golf Club at Hawks Prairie in Lacey, Wash. where he led the Agronomy Department as head superintendent of the 36-hole facility since 2004. Prior to his work at Hawks Prairie, Pearsall guided the golf maintenance department at Indian Summer Golf & Country Club in Olympia for six years.
