Arraya is most well known for successfully hosting the final PGA Championship held in August. Despite brutal weather conditions in St. Louis, the tournament was a hit, with excellent conditions and an exciting finish with Brooks Koepka winning despite Tiger Woods charging down the stretch. Arraya is an experienced speaker in the industry, having addressed groups at events like the Golf Industry Show and the Green Start Academy previously.

“We’re thrilled to have a speaker of the caliber of Carlos keynoting the 2019 Golfdom Summit,” said Golfdom Publisher Craig MacGregor. “Having seen his handiwork in person last year at the 2018 PGA Championship, I know what he is capable of as a superintendent. But what’s even more impressive to me about Carlos is what he’s capable of as a leader of people.”

“The reason I wanted to have Carlos speak at the Golfdom Summit is that he brings a new perspective to the industry, as he is a proponent of creating a better work/life balance in the industry,” said Golfdom Editor-in-Chief Seth Jones. “I’ve seen Carlos present before, and I think he represents a shift in the way the industry is going. I think our attendees and partners will find Carlos’ approach refreshing.”

Arraya’s keynote presentation, “Leading with Agility,” is sponsored by Golfdom Summit partner Nufarm.

“The Golfdom Summit has become the destination event for superintendents,” Arraya said. “I am excited and privileged to be the keynote speaker at this year’s event.”

The Summit is an invitation-only event that brings together qualified superintendents with leading suppliers of products used for the maintenance of golf courses. The 9th annual Summit will be held at the beautiful Reunion Resort in Orlando, Fla., Dec. 3-5.
