The Northern Ohio Golf Course Superintendents Association (NOGCSA) celebrated its 100th anniversary on May 12.

To commemorate this milestone, the NOGCSA hosted a kick-off event on at Youngstown Country Club, the home of Colonel John Morley, the founder of the NOGCSA. Leadership in Northeast Ohio eventually led to the 1926 formation of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA).

“The efforts of Colonel John Morley and our founders laid the groundwork for the success of our industry not only in Northeast Ohio, but the world,” said Mark F. Jordan, CGSC, natural resource leader at Westfield Group Country Club in Westfield Center, Ohio, and GCSAA and NOGCSA past president.

The NOGCSA currently has more than 300 members at approximately 154 facilities and companies in Northern Ohio and extends into Michigan and Pennsylvania.
