Under his leadership, the golf course and club house opened in 1995, and the course expanded to 27 holes in 2003. Consistently named Best Golf Course in the area, Yankee Trace hosted the PGA Tour’s Dayton Open, and the residential area is now home to almost 900 families. Other projects that have developed during his tenure include miles of major road improvements, a new Police facility and new Public Works Center, Kroger Market Place, Miami Valley Hospital South and Cornerstone of Centerville.
