AUGUSTA, Ga. – Cushman, a Textron Specialized Vehicles brand, continues to show its dedication to the golfing industry with the “Growing Greens” program. For every purchase of a new Cushman Hauler® utility vehicle, $50 will be donated to the local Golf Course Superintendents Association (GCSAA) chapter of the purchasing course.
Our block is open!
Each year we have several Peaks & Prairies GCSA members disappointed they missed out of the chapter room block at the GIS. Don’t be “that person” for the 2017 GIS in Orlando!
Even if you aren’t 100% positive you are attending, make your reservation.
You can adjust your nights, or even cancel with proper notice. November, December and January are too late to reserve a room in the block. By the end of October, if any rooms are left, we give them back to GCSAA, per our agreement.
We will have two blocks, again, in 2017. The Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando, and the Hyatt Place Convention Center/ International Drive. We have used the Rosen Inn ($97 Single/Double) before and it is more of a budget property. The Hyatt Place ($156 Single/Double) is on International Drive. Although we have not used the Hyatt as a block property before, it is near our previous blocks. Shuttle service is available to the convention center with both properties.
Applications close Sept 15! This is a great opportunity to attend the GIS!
Dear members of the Peaks & Prairies GCSA,
GCSAA’s 2016 Property Profile and Environmental Stewardship Survey is now underway. This survey focuses on course features, turf species and basic stewardship information that will help GCSAA advocate for the golf course industry and our profession. The survey takes just 15 to 20 minutes to complete. GCSAA’s Board of Directors is asking for your help by completing and promoting this important survey. If you have taken the survey, the Board thanks you for your service. Use this link to take the GCEP Property Profile and Environmental Stewardship Survey
We realize April is a busy time of the year. However, this information is very important and with just a short time investment you will help make a difference for the superintendent profession and industry. GCSAA needs this important data that is based upon your continued input. Without it regulators may only have information provided to them by those wanting to ban the tools we need to do our jobs and contribute to the success of our facilities.
Your participation ensures accurate usage data and a stronger foundation of science and fact from which GCSAA can advocate. In addition to taking this survey yourself, please encourage superintendents in your area to participate— both GCSAA members and non-members alike. Advocacy for the golf course superintendent is one of GCSAA’s most important efforts and a pillar upon which we operate. Please take the survey before it closes on April 29.
This survey is conducted by the National Golf Foundation on behalf of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America. GCSAA receives its funding for this project through a grant from the Environmental Institute for Golf and specifically from the generous support of the United States Golf Association.
Visit www.gcsaa.org today to learn more about the Golf Course Environmental Profile and to access the survey. Thank you for all you do to support and promote the golf course superintendent and the game of golf!
Peter J. Grass, CGCS
GCSAA needs your help to determine nationwide pest management practices through the Pest Management Practices Survey; no pesticide records required. This information provides much needed data for GCSAA to advocate on behalf of the golf course industry and superintendent profession. Without it, we won’t have supporting data to back up the facts showing golf courses as professionally managed greenspaces. The GCEP is sponsored by the USGA in conjunction with the EIFG.
