“Green Start Academy offers an opportunity for assistant superintendents to get invaluable face time with notable industry professionals,” said Ren Wilkes, tactical marketing manager for John Deere Golf. “Since 2005, John Deere has taken great pride in contributing to the next generation of superintendents through this program. The relationships created during GSA last a lifetime, and our alumni are a testament to the success of the event.”

Those selected will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the Raleigh, N.C.-area. The chosen assistant superintendents will be notified during the week of Aug. 5.

“Green Start Academy was designed to cultivate skills in budgeting, leadership and management,” said Mike Hirvela, customer marketing manager, golf, Bayer. “In addition, Green Start Academy provides a venue for networking and peer to peer interaction. We’re honored to help assistants grow their roles as future leaders of golf course management.”
