The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) recently announced that “Thank a Golf Course Superintendent Day” will now kick off Sept. 12 in order to align with more of the organization’s international partners.

As “Thank a Golf Course Superintendent Day,” which began in 2017 to recognize those who are essential to golf’s success, has grown, so has the number of organizations involved, and the organization says the Sept. 12 celebration date will allow more participation in the event.

Among the groups taking part in the global event are the British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA), the Australia Sports Turf Managers Association (ASTMA), the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) and The Federation of European Golf Greenkeepers Associations (FEGGA).

The celebration will include commercials that will appear on the Golf Channel and other media outlets and social media messages sharing the many ways that superintendents benefit the game and their communities.

Golfers and others are encouraged to join in the conversation on social media using the hashtags “#ThankASuper” or “#ThankAGreenkeeper” depending on their country’s nomenclature. In addition, golf courses and other groups are encouraged to provide special recognition for their superintendent and course maintenance staff on Sept. 12.
