    Ohio’s five affiliated chapters of the GCSAA 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 outreach grant, where matching funds are available for programs focused on increasing awareness of the superintendent profession. The Golf Zone airs live from 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm on FOX Sports Ohio and is accessible to 5.4 million subscribers in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and New York.

    This Sunday, May 22, the new segment titled, The Superintendent Report, will make its debut and will continue every Sunday through October. In the first episode, GCSAA director and superintendent at Westfield Country Club, Mark Jordan will appear 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.

    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.

    After a warmer than normal March the weather pattern will shift back to a cooler pattern at the beginning of April.  An upper level trough over eastern North America will produce northwesterly flow for much of the first two weeks of April.  The northwesterly flow will bring cooler air from Canada.  As weather systems move from west to east across the U.S., we will get some warm days, but on average the temperature will be slightly cooler than normal for April.  Northwesterly flow tends to bring drier air.  Several storms systems will bring significant rain during the month, but the precipitation is likely to be slightly below normal for April.

     Nate McKinniss, OSU Turf Club Treasurer. Nate is a past recipient of multiple industry scholarships including the OTF R.D. Baker Scholarship. He will also be traveling overseas as the 2016 TurfNet intern.
    My name is Nate McKinniss, turfgrass student and Turf Club Treasurer at the Ohio State University. On behalf of the Turf Club at OSU, I would like to ask for your support of our annual golf outing which will take place on Sunday, April 17th in Groveport, Ohio. This event is our club's biggest fundraiser of the year, and we hope to engage OSU alumni and program supporters from around the state.

    OSU Turf Club hosts this golf outing for the purpose of raising money for the turfgrass students who travel and participate in the Golf Industry Show and Sports Turf Managers Show Turf Bowl competitions.

    Most travel expenses are out of pocket for us students, in which case not many of us go. We are hoping to give more students the opportunity to experience these annual conferences and Turf Bowls as they are excellent learning experiences.

    To allow more students to attend, we need a big turnout for the outing. Information about the golf outing is included within this note (click here)

     (Left to right) Steven Shavel, Tanner Turner, Michael Sanders, Nate McKinniss and David Gardner at this year's Golf Industry Show. The team placed 12th out of nearly 80 teams at the GIS Turf Bowl and 8th out of 25 teams at the STMA Turf Bowl.
    With that, we want to pull in enough teams to fill up the course. It would mean a lot for us to be able to network with alumni while raising money for the club!

    As you know, Ohio State alumni and program supporters are located all over the world! These annual conferences are our opportunity to interact with these individuals, talk about the current program and in many cases, line up future employment.

    Even if you are not able to play, please consider supporting the club by purchasing a hole sign, donating a raffle item or simply making a small contribution to the club. With your support, we can send even more students to these events and show the country just how strong Buckeye Nation truly is!

    Best regards and looking forward,

    Nate McKinniss
