1. Turf’s most interesting man At the 2017 Green Start Academy, Golfdom’s Seth Jones (left) and Pat Finlen, CGCS, (right) general manager, Olympic Club in San Francisco, were happy to see Bob Farren, CGCS (center) Pinehurst (N.C.) Resort, fully commit to his “Turf’s Most Interesting Man” nickname with the new beard.

2. The future is bright These GSA attendees were happy to catch some rays at the Bayer research facility in Clayton, N.C.

3. Host superintendents Green Start Academy attendees played a 9-hole golf challenge at Bayer’s Development and Training Center in Clayton. Gary F. Ryan (left), R&D specialist, and Bob Lippincott, site superintendent, manage the property.

4. This Bud’s for you Seth Smith (left), assistant, Royal Oaks CC, Dallas, and Luke McGhee, assistant, Westmoor CC, Brookfield, Wis., enjoy a cold one after golf.

5. Broken glass everywhere Evan Embrey (left), assistant at The Woodlands Club, Falmouth, Maine, and Michael Stevens, regional agronomist, Billy Casper Golf, St. Augustine, Fla., celebrate Stevens breaking a pane of glass “The Big Break” style, in just one shot at the 9-hole challenge.

6. Similar styles Lukus Harvey (left), director of agronomy, Atlanta Athletic Club, and Tyler Otero, superintendent at North Jersey CC, Wayne, N.J., spoke on “how to be ready for the job you want, and keep it.” They also could have spoken on, “how to take a great Golfdom Gallery photo.”

7. Down in a hole Besides networking, budgeting and teamwork, this Green Start Academy attendee also learned the depth of a footgolf hole, the hard way. But at least he didn’t spill his beer.
