GCSAA has had the biggest impact on my career in golf club management. I earned CGCS designation in 1991 and have leveraged this accomplishment to move up into the General Manager role that I have been in for the past 20 years. GCSAA has always provided many educational opportunities and over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to take advantage of those to help me acquire the General Manager/COO position with three different facilities. Whether someone decides to be a Golf Course Superintendent, a General Manager like myself or pursue another career in the golf industry, GCSAA continues to provide the education needed to achieve your goals and advance your career. In the 38 years that I have been a member, I consider my membership the best investment I’ve ever made.
