Firstly thank you to all those who applied for the 2019 Future Turf Managers Initiative, the standard was very high which made for a close and tough task for each of the judges.
The NZGCSA is pleased to announce and congratulates the following individuals who have been selected to take part in this year's Future Turf Managers Initiative which is being held in Melbourne, Australia, 17-19 March 2019 in conjunction with the AGCSA.
Ben Simons (Cape Kidnappers)
Callum Cameron (Remuera Golf Club)
Harry Middleton (Tauranga Golf Club)
Phil Marra (Shandon Golf Club)
We know you four will do a great job representing the NZGCSA and that you will also get a lot out of the FTMI as those who have attended in previous years before you have. The FTMI is also awesome chance to establish potential life time contacts and friendships with fellow green keepers from across the ditch as well as extend your knowledge with the mentoring program, seminars, talks and workshops which make up part of the FTMI.
Big thanks to Jacobsen for this wonderful opportunity for our members to partake in. Their continued ongoing support of our industry and in particular the FTMI is very much appreciated.
