America's leading course management association

The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America is the professional association for the men and women who manage and maintain the game’s most valuable resource — the golf course. The golf industry recognizes the association as a key contributor in elevating the game and business.

Since 1926, with a focus on golf course management, GCSAA has been the top professional association in the United States and worldwide. Headquartered in Lawrence, Kan., it provides education, information and representation to more than 17,000 members in more than 72 countries. Its mission is to serve its members, advance the profession and enhance the vitality of the game of golf.

The Environmental Institute for Golf, a philanthropic arm of the GCSAA, is a collaborative effort of the environmental and golf communities, dedicated to strengthening the compatibility of golf with the natural environment. The EIFG concentrates on delivering programs and services that communicate best management practices of environmental stewardship on the golf course.
