Recognition for Golf Course Management Professionals

Thank A Greenkeeper

Lawrence, Kansas, United States: Golf course superintendents around the world were yesterday recognised for their contributions to the game.

September 13 marked ‘Thank a Golf Course Superintendent Day’ with all those who love golf encouraged to thank their course’s superintendent.

Groups taking part in the global event included the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA), British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA), the Australia Sports Turf Managers Association (ASTMA), the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) and The Federation of European Golf Greenkeepers Associations (FEGGA).

All together the groups represent more than 31,000 golf course management professionals in 78 countries around the world.

The celebration includes a new commercial that will begin rotation on the Golf Channel and other media outlets this week and social media messages touting the many ways that superintendents make the game more enjoyable and sustainable.

Golfers and others are encouraged to join in the conversation on social media using the hashtags ‘#ThankASuper’ or ‘#ThankAGreenkeeper’ depending on their country’s nomenclature.

“Superintendents work hard each day to provide the excellent playing conditions that add to the enjoyment of the game,” said Rhett Evans, GCSAA Chief Executive Officer.

“You can show your appreciation by saying thanks in person or on social media with the hashtag #thankasuper and join in the global celebration,” he added.

Superintendents continually strive to keep the game’s playing fields healthy and beautiful with environmental stewardship as a primary focus.

Thanks to the overall efforts of the golf industry, golf courses are using less water, employing sustainable management practices and expanding natural wildlife habitats on courses.
