You were promoted because you were good at doing the work. Now, your job is to lead the people who do the work. And that’s no easy task! Call-outs, conflict, job openings and poor performance; Jodie Cunningham addresses them all in this 90-minute webinar.
Sand topdressing putting greens has proven to be a valuable management practice that yields several benefits, both agronomic and from a playability perspective. As putting green grasses have become denser and finer-textured, it is often a challenge to incorporate topdressing sand into the putting green canopy. In this 90-minute webinar, Douglas Karcher, Ph.D., focuses on the major objectives for your putting green sand topdressing program.
Over the years, sustainability has become a reoccurring theme in the turf management industry. As a result, many golf course superintendents are searching for effective solutions which are also efficient and environmentally sustainable. When it comes to fertilizers, choosing the right product and using it in the right way can ensure optimal performance while minimizing potential risk to the environment. And with so many fertilizers on the market, it’s important to understand how enhanced efficiency fertilizers (EEFs) support 4R Nutrient Stewardship. In this 60-minute webinar Chris Derrick, reviews how you can make the most of your fertilizer of choice.
You may have started in golf course management because of your love of the outdoors or of the game. While that passion makes it easier to prepare for a 6 o’clock shotgun, it doesn’t help much when it’s time for navigating the financial side of the job. Roger Stewart, Jr., CGCS, teaches some key aspects of the business of balance sheets and budgets. He shares tips he’s learned in the office that will help you plan your expenditures to deliver the playing conditions your golfers can enjoy.
Preparing the playing field is a critical element for golf course superintendents. Mowing is one of the most important aspects – and a direct impact on the equipment management function. John Sorochan, Ph.D., presents, in this 60-minute webinar, the latest mower engineering configurations to let you develop mowing practices that successfully manage putting greens.

Eric Duncanson, equipment manager at Pine Needles & Mid Pines Golf Resorts, provides an overview of electrical technology from basic principles, starting with Ohms law and progressing to more complex systems, and how it applies to turf equipment.
The turf care center where you work might not have been designed the way you would if you had the opportunity to construct a new building. You may never build from the ground up - but you can make changes to improve labor and equipment flow. In this 60-minute webinar, Mike Vogt, CGCS, shows ideas you can use when arranging space for equipment washing, maintenance and storage.
Travis Gannon, Ph.D., helps you learn more about the biological and chemical attributes of pesticides and how they behave after application on your course in this 90-minute webinar.
Recorded live in San Diego during one of our GIS seminar offerings, this segment features Nick Christians, Ph.D., who shares details regarding some of the elements of turfgrass identification. He reviews several of the common turf cultivars, their characteristics and growth habits. Christians further explains how this plays a role in other aspects of golf course management.
Details in this webinar taught by Bill Kreuser, Ph.D., can help you maximize the benefits of plant growth regulators (PGR).
Learn more about how to correctly read your soils report during this 90-minute webinar with Beth Guertal, Ph.D., who shows examples of various documents and provides key details on how to use that information on your golf course.
Utilization of soil moisture probes for irrigation, environmental models for seed head and pest control, and GDD models to schedule PGR applications have increased the precision of turfgrass management over the past decade. Nitrogen fertilization scheduling, however, is still largely based on historical management practices and qualitative observations. In this 90-minute webinar, Bill Kreuser, Ph.D., highlights current research in the area of nitrogen management and investigates the potential for technology to improve application precision on creeping bentgrass golf turf.
Providing quality leadership for your team is something we all know is essential and this 90-minute webinar taught by Armen Suny and Tom Wallace cover ideas that can really help. There will be five areas of focus in this webinar:
and last but not least, learning how to seize leadership moments and turn faith into trust.
Listen in to get started leading from the turf UP!
Beth Guertal, Ph.D., looks at logic based on science to outline practices for nutrient use. She starts with the plant’s response to a nutrient deficiency then covers macro versus micro nutrients. Listen in to hear how nutrient use can impact your management practices.

Stress isn’t any better for turfgrass than it is for people. Just like when we work to achieve more, push our limits, there can be consequences to pushing turfgrass with strenuous management practices. Beth Guertal, Ph.D., looks at turf stresses due to heat, drought, cold, flooding, salinity, pests, etc. and ways you may be able to reduce them.
During this 90-minute webinar, Zane Raudenbush, Ph.D., discusses how to properly identify these pests, the cultural practices that contribute to their success and the current control strategies you can use at your golf course.
Sometimes when we say, “Focus on the big picture.” you really need to start with something small. That’s where Beth Guertal, Ph.D., will start as she explains how basic plant parts are used for turf cultivar and species identification. This leads to right plant, right place and a series of management decisions that Guertal covers in a case study that can have practical applications.

You want your operation to run smoothly and efficiently. Yes, your physical setup impacts that but don’t overlook the importance of communication and simplification. Austin Wright, grounds complex and equipment manager at Sand Valley Resort in Rome, Wisc. provides ideas you can implement right away.
The annual bluegrass weevil (ABW) is a severely destructive insect pest of golf course turfgrass throughout the eastern US and Canada. In this 2-hour webcast, Ben McGraw, Ph.D., will discuss the keys to successful ABW management, including proper timing and selection of chemical controls, effects of cultural practices, and alternatives to chemical insecticides.
