Lawrence, Kansas, United States: The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) has launched the GCSAA Podcast, which is now available for download on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher.
The GCSAA Podcast will feature relevant association and industry content that will include educational information, updates on GCSAA programmes and services, reports from industry events, human interest stories and interviews with some of the biggest names in golf course management.
The podcast will be hosted by Scott Hollister, Editor-in-Chief of GCSAA’s Golf Course Management magazine.
This first episode, which debuted yesterday, featured GCSAA Chief Executive Officer Rhett Evans while the episode available on October 2 will include coverage of GCSAA members who were chosen as volunteers at this week’s Ryder Cup in Paris.
“We are very excited to have another way to communicate with our 18,000 members,” Evans said. “However, the GCSAA Podcast also gives us the opportunity to share all the good things happening in the golf course management industry with a wider audience.”
Upcoming episodes will feature industry legend Matt Shaffer, an update on GCSAA’s new First Green programme, an interview with superintendent Lawrence Powell and former LPGA player Renee Powell who are winners of GCSAA’s 2019 Old Tom Morris Award, and a preview of the 2019 Golf Industry Show, which will take place from February 2-7 in San Diego.
