Continuous improvement, this is the key to success. You must always be growing, personally and professionally, in order to succeed. This concept can be applied to people, places and things. Having a growth mindset allows one to look at everything through the lens of potential for improvement.
In February I am attending the 2017 Golf Industry Show in Orlando, Florida. The GCSAA Education Conference is the largest education event in the industry and covers all aspects of golf course management, including agronomics, environmental management, communications, leadership and business management. This show is an opportunity for me to expand my knowledge, learn and experience cutting-edge golf course technology and tools of the trade, network with my peers, and golf on some of the top courses in the U.S. to see how they are maintained and what makes them stand out. These types of experiences are important to find and understand new ways that I need to explore in order to continue growing as a Superintendent and to continue steering our golf course into higher levels of excellence.
