Ohio’s five affiliated Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) chapters will be getting a little screen time beginning this weekend, Golf Course Management (GCM) reported.
The Northern Ohio GCSA, Central Ohio GCSA, Greater Cincinnati GCSA, Miami Valley GCSA and Northwestern Ohio GCSA have combined to partner with FOX Sports Ohio’s popular golf show, “The Golf Zone with Jimmy Hanlin,” to highlight the role of the golf course superintendent. The collaborative effort was made possible by the GCSAA’s chapter outreach grant, where matching funds are available for programs focused on increasing awareness of the superintendent profession, GCM reported.
The Golf Zone airs live from 8–10 p.m. on FOX Sports Ohio and is accessible to 5.4 million subscribers in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and New York, GCM reported.
On May 22, the new segment titled “The Superintendent Report” made its debut and will continue every Sunday through October. In the first episode, Mark Jordan, CGCS, GCSAA director and superintendent at Westfield Country Club, appeared in studio to discuss his recent visit to Washington D.C. for National Golf Day, as well as Ohio Turfgrass Week which is May 22-29, GCM reported.
Over the next 20 weeks, the segment will be utilized to promote the golf course superintendent, the environmental benefits of golf courses, unique locations and much more. Guests will appear live in studio, by phone or in some cases, segments will be pre-recorded to give viewers an inside look at the role of the golf course superintendent, GCM reported.
