Funded by Nufarm, GCSAA program offers training, education specific to assistants

Lawrence, Kan. (Jan. 29, 2019) – Eleven assistant superintendent members of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) have been chosen for the second class of the EXCEL Leadership Program, which is funded by Nufarm and administered by GCSAA’s philanthropic organization, the Environmental Institute for Golf.

EXCEL offers leadership training for personal, career and community/industry stewardship exclusively for assistant superintendents. The name EXCEL represents the education, cross training, community, encouragement and leadership development that the program provides.

The program will feature two, two-day training sessions at Nufarm’s headquarters in Chicago and GCSAA headquarters in Lawrence, Kan., each year of the three-year program cycle. In addition to the two-day training events, EXCEL members will also receive five-day trips to the annual Golf Industry Show. The 2019 Golf Industry show takes place Feb. 2-7 in San Diego.
“Assistant superintendents are the future of the profession,” GCSAA CEO Rhett Evans said. “I congratulate the winners of the EXCEL Leadership Program as it takes its second class to GIS and look forward to meeting them in San Diego. They are taking steps to not only grow their own careers, but serve as an example to the next generation of leaders of our association and the superintendent profession.”
The members of the 2018 EXCEL Leadership Program are:

  • Brandon Anderson of Edgewood Country Club in Pittsburgh, Pa.
  • Hunter Brewer of FarmLinks Golf Club in Sylacauga, Ala.
  • Nicholas Carothers of Aronimink in Newtown Square, Pa.
  • Chad Gilkison of Wolf Creek Golf Links in Overland Park, Kan.
  • Matthew Legg of Weston Golf and Country Club Ltd. in Toronto, ON, Canada
  • Anthony Minniti of The Creek in Locust Valley, N.Y.
  • Brett Oxley of Country Club of Decatur in Warrensburg, Ill.
  • Daniel Palin of Vinoy Resort and Golf Club in Saint Petersburg, Fla.
  • Conrad Pannkuk of The Club at Wynstone in Lake In The Hills, Ill.
  • Marty Savage of Green Valley Ranch Golf Club in Denver, Colo.
  • Mike Teatum of North Hempstead Country Club in Port Washington, N.Y.

 “It’s exciting to take our second class to GIS,” Steve Vincent, Nufarm Turf & Ornamental sales manager said. “We assembled a great team of future leaders, and they will have a full slate of activities at the Golf Industry Show to continue on their career journey.”
