Date set for Bayer’s inaugural Women in Golf event

By |  June 4, 2019 2 Comments

Bayer will host the inaugural North American Women in Golf education event for turf managers, “Welcome to the Club,” on Sept. 18-20, 2019 in Raleigh, N.C.

This year’s event will bring together women from around the U.S. and Canada to focus on enhancing their careers. Applications will be accepted online until July 1.

“Although women account for a small percentage of the golf and turf industry, the number of women involved in these industries is growing, and we’re thrilled to be a part of that growth and sponsor this event,” said Will MacMurdo, head of the Bayer U.S. Turf and Ornamentals Business. “We believe that diversity and inclusion make for a stronger industry, and this event solidifies our commitment to both. Bayer continues to look for opportunities to grow leaders in the industry through this event and others, like Green Start Academy.”

The event will be a celebration of community, commonality and growth. The two-day, all-expense-paid event will take place at the StateView Hotel and Lonnie Poole Golf Course on the campus of North Carolina State University, the Bayer research and educational facility in Clayton, N.C., and at the new headquarters of the Bayer Environmental Science division in Cary, N.C.

The agenda will feature leadership and educational sessions, with a mix of agronomics, personal and professional development, as well as networking opportunities with speakers and other attendees during small group breakouts and social activities.

The event is open to superintendents, assistant superintendents and other women in golf course maintenance roles around the U.S. and Canada. Space for this year’s event is limited to 50 attendees, which will be announced the first week of August. Those who want to attend must be 18 years of age or older.

    Hi There

    I am based in South Africa. Recently volunteered back at US Open at Pebble where I interned in 1996 before returning to Leopard Creek as superintendent. I won’t make it back to this event but please keep me posted on future events.
