Kevin P. Breen, the certified golf course superintendent (CGCS) at La Rinconada Country Club in California, has been re-elected to a one-year term as president of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA).

Breen is the 86th president in the association’s history and the first to be elected to a second term since 1947. Breen was nominated for a second presidential year when the 2022 vice president, Kevin P. Sunderman, CGCS, resigned from the board to join the GCSAA staff as chief operating officer.

Breen served as vice president of the association in 2021 and has been a member of the association’s board of directors since 2015. A 32-year member of GCSAA, Breen is also a past president of both the Sierra Nevada GCSA and the California GCSA.

Breen has served as the superintendent at La Rinconada CC since 2011. Prior to that, he served as the director of maintenance at Lahontan Golf Club in California, and as the superintendent at Los Alamos (N.M.) Golf Course.

“We have great momentum as we start the year with our highest membership numbers since 2009 and strong satisfaction,” Breen said. “We’re not taking anything for granted — we will continue to think again. Our world is moving quickly, and we’ll continue to adapt.”

He has bachelor’s degrees in horticulture / turf from Colorado State University in Fort Collins and in meteorology from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.
