Golf Course Superintendents Association of America

Logo of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America.

Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) was originally founded in 1926 when 60 superintendents met at the Sylvania Country Club in Toledo, Ohio to form the National Association of Greenkeepers of America (NAGA).

GCSAA is a golf course superintendent. It is located in Lawrence, Kansas, and provides education, information and representation to 19,000 members in more than 72 countries. GCSAA’s mission is to serve its members, advance their profession and enhance the enjoyment, growth and vitality of the game of golf. The association came into being because golf course superintendents saw a need to network and share their experiences on the maintenance and upkeep of golf courses.

The association’s philanthropic organization, The Environmental Institute for Golf, works to strengthen the compatibility of golf with the natural environment through research grants, support for education programs and outreach efforts.

Rhett Evans assumed the duties of chief executive officer, January 25, 2011.[1]
