Webinar Recording: Best Management Practices Workshop

Below is the recording of our Best Management Practices Workshop presented by GCSAA on March 10, 2022.

Best Management Practices (BMPs) are tools commonly used by superintendents to provide quality playing surfaces and improve the economic and environmental health of their golf facilities. The adoption of BMP plans at the facility level helps in the advocacy efforts on behalf of golf with national, state, and local lawmakers, as well as the media. BMPs demonstrate our commitment to professional land management using science-based BMPs including the responsible use of inputs.

Facility Best Management Practice Guides –

Together We’re Better!

If you are an owner or general manager with a GCSAA Member (Superintendent, Assistant or Equipment Manager), we have made it easy for you to create a facility Best Management Practices Guide (BMPs).

Facility BMP Guides:

• Documents the knowledge, skills, and aptitude that are required for the superintendent in that position (other golf course maintenance staff as well)
• Provides documentation, support for operational and project budgets, maintenance practices, staff, etc.
• Addresses regulatory and risk management concerns of the facility
• Contributes to the overall bottom line of your facility
• Free of charge to GCSAA Member facilities

Participating with facility BMP adoption:

• Helps support the superintendent profession on local, state, regional and national levels
• Helps support the golf course management industry
• Assists with regulatory efforts at the local, state and national levels
