The management of FarmLinks, Sylacauga, Ga., has announced that the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) recently approved The Experience at FarmLinks programs for continuing education units (CEUs), through the GCSAA’s distinguished External Education Program.
“We’re excited to be an affiliate member of the GCSAA and to be able to provide quality programs that promote professional development,” Erle Fairly, President of FarmLinks, remarked. “Continuing education is imperative for the success of superintendents—and for their golf facilities. It’s important to our team that the solutions-oriented programs we offer create meaningful, educational experiences and benefit the thousands of guests who visit our property each year.”
As of August 2008, golf course superintendents who attend The Experience at FarmLinks will receive 0.45 education points for the Agrium Advanced Technologies’ fertilizer technologies presentation, and 0.30 points for the On the Course Tour, equaling 0.75 CEU points.
FarmLinks, founded by the Pursell Family in 1999, offers opportunities for marketers and operators in the golf industry to evaluate, test and exhibit new products and services. The property includes a research and demonstration facility, an 18-hole, 7,444-yard championship golf course that is open to the public, and The Experience at FarmLinks, created through partnerships with leading industry suppliers.
