While we get ready for the 2021 U.S. Open, Golf Course Trades has run my interview with new Golf Course Superintendent’s Association of America president Mark Jordan.
From the article:
“The policies and systems we set up – such as the website clearinghouse for information and CDC guidelines – are still in use and are helpful. We now have the chance to move forward with some other initiatives and programs, including some that we held in abeyance in 2020 due to Covid.
As for new projects, best practice management is at the top of the priority list. We wanted all 50 states to have bmps by 2020, and we accomplished that goal. So the next step is to have all of our courses and maintenance facilities adopt the state bmps. So our short-term goal – within the next 2-3 years – is to have complete facility adaptation of these bmps.”
