One of the most respected names in the field of golf course agronomy has come aboard the 2022 Asia Pacific Golf Summit (APGS 2022).


He is the legendary Hall of Famer Ken Mangum, a distinguished ambassador for the game of golf in Georgia nationally and internationally and a proud member of the Class of 2015 of the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame. 


Mangum, currently the Director of Golf Course and Grounds at the Atlanta Athletic Club in in the State of Georgia is renowned for how he prepared the course for the 1990 U.S. Women’s Open Championship, the 2001 PGA Championship, the 2002 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship, the 2011 PGA Championship and the 2014 U.S. Amateur Championship.


“The knowledge and experience that Ken has to offer is invaluable and with Asia fast becoming a major venue for international golf tournaments, having someone like Ken guide our golf course owners and operators on the complex procedures to set up a course to handle world-class tournaments is a very special opportunity,” declared Mike Sebastian, the owner and producer of APGS 2022.


An active member of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, Mangum served on its Board of Directors from 1996 to 2001. He also served as President of its Georgia Chapter in 1987 and currently sits on the USGA Green Section Committee.


Amongst the many industry awards that he has received, Ken is also the recipient of the USGA’s Ike Grainger Award and the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America Col. John Morley Distinguished Service Award.
