One of the first things people learn when they get involved with golf course management is those employed in our industry do not hesitate to help each other face the challenges the work brings. Whether it is teaching a new technician a better way to determine the accuracy of a height of cut gauge or lending a needed piece of equipment, it happens with regularity. In this 60-minute webinar, Trent Manning, equipment manager at Ansley Golf Club, explains the value of volunteering he gained from working at the Tour Championship and the 100th PGA Championship. Manning was exposed to new ideas and ways of completing tasks that benefit him - and his employer – providing value beyond the help he gave to those hosting the tournaments. Listen in to hear lessons learned so you can also get value from volunteering.
