Dedicated to Robert Ruff Jr.
Before he lost his long battle with cancer, Bob’s life demonstrated his compassion and love for
Virginia’s golf industry. Many of today’s leaders have fond memories of Bob’s passion, advice and tutelage.
Born and raised in Roanoke, Bob Ruff got his start in the turfgrass business working summers during high school at Hidden Valley Country Club. During college, he worked at Roanoke Country Club and stayed there for two years after his graduation from Virginia Tech with a BS in Agronomy in 1973. He became superintendent at Chatmoss Country Club in 1975 and stayed there until Wintergreen came calling in 1978. Bob stayed at Wintergreen Resort for 21 years until he took the position of Superintendent at Two Rivers Country Club near Williamsburg in 1999. He remained at Two Rivers until his untimely death in 2010.
In some small way, I hope I have helped instill my passion for the golf maintenance profession over my 34 years to the greatest bunch of assistants, peers, cohorts and friends. (Bob Ruff, 2010)
