Pellant celebrates 35 years at Topeka Country Club

 The Topeka (Kansas) Country Club (TCC) is congratulating Leo Pellant, its golf course superintendent for 35 years.

On Aug. 12, 1979, Pellant started his career at The Topeka Country Club as assistant superintendent. He had recently graduated from Kansas State University with a bacherlor’s degree in landscape horticulture with an emphasis in turfgrass Science. In 1997, Leo he was promoted to superintendent.

In celebration of this accomplishment, TCC presented Pellant and his wife, Keven, with an all-expense paid trip to Italy.

When asked about the milestone, Pellant said: “One of my favorite things in the job has been working with the different kids who’ve come through. I have worked with two generations of families and have seen many go on to become doctors, lawyers and very successful in their endeavors. Time has flown by in the blink of an eye. Topeka has been a wonderful community for my wife and I. I’m happy to say I’ve had no regrets in those 35 years.”
