Celebrate the day with support on social media using #ThankASuper
Lawrence, Kan. (August 17, 2021) – For the second year, the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA), in conjunction with other global superintendent groups, is recognizing those who help keep golf courses enjoyable and sustainable with an international “Thank a Golf Course Superintendent Day,” encouraging all those who love golf to thank their course’s superintendent. “Thank a Golf Course Superintendent Day” 2021 will be celebrated Sept. 14.
In addition to GCSAA, other groups taking part in the global event include the British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA), the Australia Sports Turf Managers Association (ASTMA), the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) and The Federation of European Golf Greenkeepers Associations (FEGGA). All together the groups represent more than 31,000 golf course management professionals in 78 countries around the world.
The celebration will include a commercial that will appear on the Golf Channel and other media outlets and social media messages touting the many ways that superintendents benefit the game and their communities’ Golfers, and others are encouraged to join in the conversation on social media using the hashtags “#ThankASuper” or “#ThankAGreenkeeper” depending on their country’s nomenclature. In addition, golf courses and other groups are encouraged to provide special recognition for their superintendent and course maintenance staff on Sept. 14.
