AGCSA host sustainable golf seminars

Golf courses have never been better conditioned and presented than they have been over the past 5 10 years. The high quality of playing surfaces has created a demand and expectation that the golf course will always be in perfect condition . At the same time, climate change, weather extremes, the global economy and environmental pressures are creating new challenges for clubs to maintain these standards. To discuss these issues the Australian Golf Course Superintendents Association has invited Steve Isaac, Director Golf Course Management of The R&A, to participate in a series of seminars on sustainable golf. Steve is responsible for helping to develop and enact The R&A Golf Course Committee s sustainability programme. Steve will also be able to share his experiences in other parts of the world as they cope with a changing environment. This is an event that golf club administrators, superintendents and board members must attend if they want to ensure the future viability of their facility. Seminars will be held in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. To register your interest in participating and view more details, download the Expression of Interest Form
