Justin DePippo went from working at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square to director of the Bel-Air Country Club, a suave Southern California club, all before the age of 30, writes Guy Cipriano for golfcourseindustry.com.
DePippo interned at Aronimink,, than went back as an assistant.
But he always wanted to try the West Coast.
“I had always seen and heard about Pebble Beach, Torrey Pines, Los Angeles Country Club, Bel-Air and Riviera,” he said.
DePippo moved to the West Coast at 23, bringing a Penn State degree and his golf club experience.
He rapidly ascended at Las Angeles Country Club, becoming the superintendent of the North Course by age 26. In 2017, DePippo was appointed the director of golf course and grounds at Bel-Air Country Club.
Now a 30-year-old DePippo represents a fast riser in the industry.
He attributes his quick rise in the industry to setting himself apart.
“A good way to separate yourself is to be the hardest working person in the room. I learned working at Aronimink and Los Angeles Country Club that there’s competition at those places.”
Despite the hard work, he enjoys what he does and doesn’t consider it work.
