Dear members of the Idaho 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 <a href=”https://ngf.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8lgrCvVAeCCyOmV?src=1″>GCEP Property Profile and Environmental Stewardship Survey </a>

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!

Sincerely,

Peter J. Grass, CGCS
President, GCSAA

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
