Mack finds an ally of golf in Congressman Collins
Lydell Mack, superintendent at Big Canoe Golf Club in Jasper, Ga., and a GCSAA Grassroots Ambassador, found the support he was looking for in a one-on-one meeting last month with Doug Collins, Republican congressman from Georgia's 9th District. Mack and Collins discussed the impact of the Department of Labor’s new overtime rule, and the 12-year GCSAA member offered some expert advice for the congressman's own lawn care.
Reminder: New Class A and CGCS eligibility coming in 2017
