Paul C. McMahon

Paul started his career in 1987 as an irrigation engineer at G.L. Cornell Company, a major large landscape equipment vendor in Gaithersburg, Maryland. He advanced to managing the irrigation division of that company within two years, a position he held until joining Hydro Designs in 1996.

Paul’s primary focus is golf course irrigation consulting. He is well-known in the golf course industry throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and brings his wealth of knowledge regarding agronomic conditions and the local golf environment to his work. Over the years he has provided services to courses throughout the United States due to his relationships with golf course architects, golf course management companies, and several nation-wide golf course construction companies.

Paul takes pride in his ability to tailor a project to the client’s budget, helping the client understand where to focus funds in order to get the most effect. Golf course irrigation design and consulting is a blend of understanding the landscape and agronomic management practices at the site, electrical, hydraulic, and irrigation engineering fundamentals, construction practices, and the current irrigation technology. Paul is dedicated to maintaining his knowledge of all of these fields, particularly staying abreast of new products and practices so that he can bring the best solutions possible to his clients.

Paul earned B.S. and Master’s degrees in Agricultural Engineering at Virginia Tech University. He is a Professional Member of the American Society of Irrigation Consultants, Golf Course Builders Association of America, several local golf course superintendents organizations, holds Golf Course Designer Certification and Golf Course Irrigation Auditor Certification from the Irrigation Association, and is a US EPA WaterSense Partner.
