In 2018, the ELGAs were updated to recognize more superintendents in more focused areas of environmental sustainability. The ELGAs are based on the environmental best management practices that GCSAA recommends all courses utilize.
There are four ELGAs available:
- Natural Resource Conservation Award

- Communications and Outreach Award
- Innovative Conservation Award
There will be one winner and two runners-up recognized for each award. GCSAA members may apply to one, two, three or all four awards in a single year. However, an individual can only win one award per year.
All applicants will be notified by December whether or not they have been selected as a winner. Winners will be recognized at the Golf Industry Show.
