A high profile, former golf course superintendent who hosted two U.S. Opens and PGA Tour Events, as well as several USGA National Championships during his career, Eric Greytok was recently named National Sales Director for Macro-Sorb Technologies LLC, the leading provider of professional-grade amino acid products for the turf management industry, and SMS Additive Solutions LLC, a manufacturer of innovative soil surfactants, spray adjuvants and tank-mix additives.
Greytok will direct sales activities for both companies, implementing agronomic programs, strategic planning and new product development, as well as provide assistance and product training for golf course and sports turfgrass professionals throughout the country.
A 1996 graduate of Pennsylvania State University with a bachelor’s degree in Turfgrass Science, Greytok began his career at the esteemed Merion Golf Club in Philadelphia. There, he spent two years as a spray technician and assistant superintendent, working under Paul B. Latshaw. He also spent time at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles and Congressional Country Club in Washington, D.C., working under the guidance of Paul R. Latshaw. He then joined Pebble Beach Golf Links, one of the world’s most recognizable golf courses.
In 2000, while at Pebble Beach, Greytok became the youngest golf course superintendent to host a U.S. Open. He was 27. In 2001 Greytok went to Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaronek, N.Y. , where he hosted the 2004 U.S. Amateur and the 2006 U.S. Open. He served as golf course superintendent there until 2007.
Greytok then spent five years as golf course superintendent at Belfair Plantation Golf Club in Hilton Head, S.C. Most recently, he was golf course superintendent at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington, NC.
“We are thrilled to have Eric join Macro-Sorb and SMS Additive Solutions,” said Michael Kubinec, vice president for both companies. “His vast experience in golf course turf management will be invaluable to the companies as we increase distribution of our current products and introduce new solutions for the golf course industry.”
A native of suburban Philadelphia, Greytok now lives in Chico, Calif., with his wife, Kelly, and two children, Joe, 11, and Kendall, 9-1/2. He can be reached at email@example.com.
