18 GOLF COURSE MANAGEMENT 01.19 Forbes covers finance. Industry. Technology. Science. Poli- tics. Obviously, it also has its finger on the pulse of golf. Justin DePippo is proof. DePippo — the director of golf course and grounds at star-studded (think actor Jack Nicholson) Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles — has been touted by the prestigious magazine as a rising star. Forbes included DePippo on a who's who list in the magazine's 2019 "30-Under-30: Sports," which places the spotlight on 30 people under the age of 30 who represent the next generation of standouts. Others on the list include Milwau - kee Bucks basketball star Giannis "The Greek Freak" Antetok- ounmpo; gold-medal gymnast Laurie Hernandez; and Cleveland Indians star shortstop Francisco Lindor. Upon hearing that he had been picked by Forbes, DePippo tells GCM that it was important in multiple ways. "I was hon - ored to be among Olympians, major champions and others who already have made an impact," says DePippo, 29, a five-year GCSAA member. "I think it's good for golf and the superinten - dent profession. It sheds light on our industry." This honor for DePippo comes as no surprise to GCSAA su - perintendent John Gosselin, who oversaw DePippo at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pa.
