Anson earned his B.S. in Agronomy from SUNY Cobleskill, where he was a four-year member of the golf team. He will oversee all aspects of agronomic conditioning and community outreach at Fox Hollow. The New York native is a member of the national Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) as well as the New Jersey, Metropolitan and Long Island chapters.
An avid learner, Anson has volunteered at more than 25 PGA TOUR events including major championships and FedEx Cup tournaments. He has walked over 1,500 courses in the U.S. and abroad.
His career includes stints at Fresh Meadow Country Club (Great Neck, N.Y.), The Broadmoor (Colorado Springs, Colo.), Sebonack Golf Club (Southampton, N.Y.), Atlantic Golf Club (Bridgehampton, N.Y.), East Hampton Golf Club (East Hampton, N.Y.) and Due Process Stables Golf Club (Colts Neck, N.J.).
“Ken is a true student of the game,” says Matthew Galvin, Managing Partner. “His intimate knowledge of agronomic best practices will be an asset as we continue to raise Fox Hollow to new heights.”
Earlier this year, Billy Casper Golf and Morningstar Golf and Hospitality acquired the popular club. They’ve since invested more than $500,000 in new golf carts and maintenance equipment to further enhance the golf experience.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of bringing Fox Hollow to its full potential,” says Anson. “The course is well on its way to achieving championship conditioning.”

About Fox Hollow Golf Club
The semi-private Fox Hollow Golf Club – voted one of the top northeast golf courses by readers of Garden State Golf Magazine – features a fun and challenging, 18-hole, 6,371-yard, par-70 layout rife with elevation changes. Originally designed by Hal Purdy, once a construction supervisor for legendary architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the course was completely re-modeled in 2000. Its fast and pristine greens contain more-than-occasional undulations. The course is augmented by a driving range with 20 grass tees and a bunkered practice green and spacious putting green. Private and group lessons are conducted by PGA professionals.
A full slate of activities for beginner, intermediate and highly-skilled golfers are available. As part of its endeavor to grow family participation, Fox Hollow offers free golf to children with a paid adult after 3 p.m. daily.
