Sadler joined Duke University Golf Club in July 2015. He developed a passion for the game at a young age, learning from his father in their back yard. His love for the outdoors, and the game of golf made choosing a career in in the golf maintenance industry a no-brainer.
Sadler graduated from North Carolina State University in 2009 with a B.S. Turfgrass Management. While in school, he worked as an intern during the construction and grow-in of The Club at Twelve Oaks, a Jack Nicklaus design, in Holly Springs, North Carolina. Upon graduation he was promoted to Assistant Superintendent where he remained for 7 years. When a position opened at Crooked Creek Golf Club in neighboring Fuquay-Varina, Sadler moved up to Head Golf Course Superintendent where he worked to improve course conditions for 12 months before joining the agronomy department at Duke University Golf Club.
Sadler is responsible for overseeing all daily maintenance of the golf course as well as developing long-range goals for the Duke University Golf Club. Sadler takes the Club’s moniker, ‘The Getting Better Every Day Duke University Golf Club’, to heart and strives to help make that moniker a reality.
Sadler resides in Holly Springs with his wife, Katherine. When away from work, he enjoys playing golf, hiking, hunting, attending local sporting events and most importantly spending time with family.
