Target Specialty Products to host “Golfing Through Change with COVID-19” webinar

By |  April 13, 2020 0 Comments

Target Specialty Products will host “Golfing Through Change with COVID-19,” an interactive panel discussion with golf course superintendents to discuss the superintendent’s perspective on closures and maintenance during the COVID-19 crisis.

The webinar will be on Thursday, April 16, 2020 from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. EST. It is part five of the Turf Fuel Master Class, a business growth webinar series.

“Since this pandemic started to impact North America in mid-March, our superintendent customers have been sharing their thoughts and concerns with our sales representatives,” said David Helt, president of Target Specialty Products. “This webinar will be an interesting forum to share these thoughts publicly.”

The panelists include:

Kyle Barton recently joined Naperville Country Club just outside Chicago as golf course superintendent, and he is a recent winner of the GCSAA Grassroots Ambassador Leadership Award. As golf courses are closed in the State of Illinois, Barton is conducting minimal course maintenance during the COVID-19 crisis.

Ken Bruneski has been the golf course superintendent at Nk’Mip Canyon Desert Golf Course in Oliver British Columbia for 14 years. He is currently the B.C. director of the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association. British Columbia currently allows golf, but Nk’Mip Golf Course has voluntarily closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ian Daniels is the golf course superintendent at Teugega Country Club in Rome, N.Y. He’s a GCSAA Grassroots Ambassador. New York State recently prohibited golf courses from operating, and after several days of golf taking place at Teugega this spring, the golf course has closed for play.

“We are thankful for the opportunity to have a public discussion with these professionals about the very difficult situation we are in as an industry,” said Mark Jull, Turf Fuel business manager. “The webinar will hopefully help attendees get new perspectives on how their peers are handling the crisis.”
