The role of the Equipment Manager has come a long way in the years since I started in the Golf Industry. It’s gone from simple mechanical equipment to computerized equipment. It will grow more technologically into the future with environmental concerns, increased playing demands and greater productivity from equipment. There’s been an increase in demand to create detailed reports, equipment logs, budgeting and purchasing decisions. Continued education and networking with peers plays a vital role in keeping up with the industry as it continues to grow. GCSAA has committed to providing the education and skills needed for Equipment Managers to be successful in a professional career.
