Stenson is responsible for the overall master plan for Avenel in Potomac, Md. In 1984, he joined the PGA Tour as project manager for TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm.

Two years later, he became the Tour’s director of construction and then director of design, overseeing the design of TPC courses in Las Vegas, Tampa and Hartford, Conn. In 1991, he joined IMG as Director of Design, a position he held for 25 years. Stenson designed more than 70 courses worldwide in partnership with some of IMG’s well-known clients, including Nick Faldo and Annika Sorenstam.

According to Stinson, he plans on making sustainability a central focus of his presidency.

“Sustainability – environmental, economic and social – is at the core of advances in golf course design in recent years and is essential to the future of the game,” Stinson said. “We continue to move away from the wall-to-wall irrigated turf monoculture that requires massive amounts of water and chemicals. Look for ASGCA members and our affiliated partners to generate even more creative measures in sustainable design and maintenance going forward.”
