In a recognition of dedication and excellence, Jason Moon was named Utah PGA Superintendent of the Year. He won the award in the category for public courses, besting 78 other Utah public golf course superintendents.

This prestigious award recognizes Moon's outstanding contributions at Hubbard Golf Course, where he oversees maintenance of about 140 acres of greens, fairways, rough and other treatable turf.

“Receiving this award is a great honor,” Moon said.

He said the award is not just a personal triumph, but also a reflection of the collaborative spirit at Hubbard Golf Course. He said he the support he gets from the Hubbard staff and base leadership is incredible.

“It’s really special to be recognized, but this award is not just for me, it’s an award for all of us,” Moon said. “For the base, for this whole facility, and for the entire staff who work hard to make this a top-notch place to play.”

The award recognizes Moon’s meticulous attention to detail, innovative solutions to course challenges, and dedication to environmental sustainability. He brings to the job nearly 40 years of experience and expertise in turf management, landscaping, and course maintenance. Knowing his work and his product will be judged every day by players helps motivate him to always do his best.

“We strive to be better than everyone else,” he said. “I have leaders who allow me to do what’s necessary agronomically without question. The success of this course, both financially and reputation-wise, allows me to continue to do what I do best.”

Moon's journey to this award has been marked by a passion for his craft and a commitment to creating an enjoyable playing experience for golf enthusiasts. His ability to strike a balance between preserving the natural beauty of the landscape and enhancing the golfing experience has transformed Hubbard Golf Course into one of the top golf destinations within the Utah golfing community.

“He is without a question the most important person at this facility,” said Jason Woodling, general manager of Hubbard Golf Course.

Moon was recognized with the same award in 2008 as superintendent at Oakridge Country Club in Farmington, Utah.
