Limestone Springs to Host September 9th Superintendent and Technicians Meeting
Our next regular Chapter Meeting with Education and Golf Outing will be held at Limestone Springs Golf Club on September 9th. Please note that the venue has been changed! Date and education program remain the same.

Our education program for Superintendents includes a roundtable discussion featuring John Freeman, CGCS, Lee McLemore, CGCS and Jim Simmons, CGCS entitled, "Weathering the Storm: High Profile, High Intensity."
Again this year we will hold a Technician's Workshop in conjunction with our Superintendents Meeting. The education program will feature welding techniques and safety, an ethonol presentation by ECHO and Tier 4 demonstrations by the major equipment companies. For a complete schedule CLICK HERE.



YOU MAY STILL DONATE FOR THE AUGUST 1-10 AUCTION. Click on the link below and fill out the form on-line. Your club will not need to furnish paper certificates.

Through an online platform, rounds of golf (a foursome) are auctioned to the public, providing access to golf courses many likely never have had the opportunity to enjoy. The program is being operated by the Environmental Institute for Golf, the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America.

The program is a win-win for the golf industry and for golf enthusiasts. Specifically, through funds generated by Rounds 4 Research, the game of golf is protected by developing new grass types, enhancing environmental stewardship, advocating for positive public policy towards golf and educating future golf course managers.

To learn more about Rounds 4 Research, visit Facilities can donate rounds of golf and golfers can learn more about the 2014 auctions to be conducted June 9 - 22 and August 1-10.

Thanks to all those clubs who have donated rounds to the Alabama Chapter. CLICK HERE for list of donors!

In the turf industry, we rely on Best Management Practices in our water management, pest management, and fertility programs.  These programs are beneficial in many different ways, often saving our respective courses money, as well as protecting the environment surrounding our course. The Alabama Chapter implemented a BMP in water conservation efforts in 2013.  With water being the most precious resource to our survival both physically and professionally, it is all the more critical that we care for this resource.
