GCSAA Field Staff Updates

Kevin Doyle, GCSAA

There is always so much emphasis on the color green.  As spring ramps up temperatures, the grass does indeed come to life bringing with it that wonderful seasonal hue we all enjoy.  The Masters returned to its typical April timeslot adding a green jacket to the discussion.  Earth Day is approaching, a day when sustainability and protecting our environment is meant to be celebrated.  I am unsure if the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, or on the other side of the aisle.  It is strange how politicians now can influence turf management at your facilities even more than general managers, greens committees, or owners.  When did being environmentally green turn rabid and political?  Where does the golf industry fit into this new “green” model?

Supertendent Spotlight

Meet The President- Brian Conn

Having just begun our second year as the GCSA of New York, recently

elected association president Brian Conn, CGCS, has his sights set on new

goals for himself and for the association. After working on a golf course since

high school, Brian has recently turned the page on a new chapter in his

career, and has outlined specific goals for the association as it enters its

second year.

Brian and I had the opportunity to discuss these goals and many other things

during a recent phone conversation. While the general synopsis is that the

inaugural year of the newly consolidated association was a success, it was

also met with great challenges. Brian, along with the board of directors and

the chapter administrator, has outlined some specific goals for 2021 that will

set our sights on addressing the challenges we faced last year, and help

develop a plan for the future of the GCSANY.

Message from our Chapter Administrator

Suzanne Mis



Happy Spring everyone! GCSA of NY is ramping up for a terrific season. We already have several events planned, so I hope you can check your calendars and attend at least one or two functions. We are sponsoring a golf league that will run from the month of May through October. The 2-man teams will face off against each other at a course and time of their own choosing and the scores will be recorded. This is sure to be a fun time where you get a chance to meet new peers and play new courses while competing for cash prizes. We already have several teams signed up, so don't miss your chance. In May we will have a Member-Guest tournament at Wild Wood Country Club in Rush, NY. The cost is $150 per 2-man team for 18-holes of golf, cart and a steak dinner. A Trophy, prizes and skins will be awarded in this best ball shamble format event. Save the dates of June 23 for a social golf event at Conklin Players Club, July 22nd, a 9-hole event at Attica's 10th Hole & Golf Course, August 24th, for the POA Tournament at Turning Stone Resort & Casino and October 5th for a social golf event at Irondequoit Country Club. Coming in June will be our very first printed GCSA of NY Membership Directory. This directory will include an affiliate section and member section. Please note, that only those affiliates and members who are paid in full will be put into the directory. Up to this point, we have been sending email updates to our entire contact list, but effective May 15th, only our dues paying members and affiliates will receive the emails and newsletters. Therefore, if you are not sure of your status, please contact me and I will update you on your status. Also, please check to make sure all the information we have in the database is correct. If our information is not correct, the directory will be incorrect also. So please, please log in or contact me to verify your contact information. As always, I am available to assist you at any time. If you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact me. You can email me at gcsaofny@gmail.com and visit our website at www.gcsaofny.org. I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events.
