John Deere announced Penn State University as the winner of the 2023 GCSAA Collegiate Turf Bowl during the GCSAA Conference and Trade Show.

The winners received a traveling trophy, a $4,000 first-place cash prize and the opportunity to complete a paid employment assignment at the Desert Mountain Golf Club and Community in Scottsdale, Ariz.

As a part of the Collegiate Turf Bowl, Penn State University competed against 62 student teams representing 27 colleges and universities from across the U.S. The competition judged teams on overall industry knowledge and problem-solving skills in high-pressure situations.

“I always love seeing firsthand the passion for the industry that these students have, and this year’s competition was no different,” said Manny Gan, global director of golf for John Deere. “The students from Penn State University had the tenacity and expertise needed to succeed and I have no doubt that they will thrive within the golf industry. Through our partnership with GCSAA, we are lucky enough to see the next generation of superintendents and golf professionals grow and are looking forward to seeing where their careers take them.”
