A golf course superintendent is the manager of a facility's biggest asset and resource: the golf course! Not only does a golf course provide a space for people to enjoy outdoor recreation, but it also offers many environmental and community benefits as well.

A superintendent wears many hats to perform the job. The role involves turfgrass and environmental management, research, managing a staff, budget development, accounting, event management, inventory control, communications and a variety of other tasks.

Superintendents care for our environment and love working outdoors!

In order to perform the responsibilities mentioned above, superintendents utilize science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) on a daily basis. Find out how they use these and why they're important with some of the lessons below.
