Revised Date for ‘Thank a Super’ Day

Lawrence, Kansas, United States: The previously announced global celebration of golf course superintendents will now kick-off on September 12 in order to align with more of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA)’s international partners.

As ‘Thank a Golf Course Superintendent Day’, which began in 2017 to recognise those who are essential to golf’s success, has grown, so has the number of organisations involved.

The September 12 celebration date will allow more participation in the event.

Among groups taking part in the global event are the 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).

The celebration will include commercials that will appear on the Golf Channel and other media outlets and social media messages sharing the many ways that superintendents benefit the game and their communities.

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.

In addition, golf courses and other groups are encouraged to provide special recognition for their superintendent and course maintenance staff on September 12.

“The growth of ‘Thank a Superintendent Day’ has been phenomenal with more than 10 million people around the world reached on social media last year,” GCSAA’s CEO Rhett Evans said.

“Through this global effort and work with our allies, this year we have the potential to spread the word even further about the superintendent’s essential role in the game of golf and to give them a well-deserved thank you,” he added.
