Future Turf Managers Initiative 2014
In association with Jacobsen and PTNZ, the NZGCSA is delighted to announce the first participants of the Future Turf Managers Initiative (FTMI).
Congratulations to Shane Cole (Springfield Golf Club), Ryan O'Donnell (Titirangi Golf Club), James O'Malley (Millbrook) and Owen Williams (Fairview Golf Club) on their selection following a rigorous judging process.
The NZGCSA, Jacobsen, and Powerturf are looking forward to getting this great initiative successfully underway. The 2014 FTMI training will take place immediately following the NZ Fine Turf Seminar in June, with involvement from a professional management training company along with input from industry professionals and leading NZ Superintendents as mentors. This is the beginning of what we hope will be a long running initiative helping to develop the future leaders of the NZ industry.
