Today's golf course superintendent must be a scientist, an economist, a business manager, a personnel manager and more. The challenge of the position requires a strong professional organization.
Two of these organizations are:
- Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA), which serves all superintendents internationally, and
- Cactus & Pine Golf Course Superintendents Association which serves members in Arizona.
Cactus and Pine members are part of a combined effort with allied associations to address and lead the way on issues such as environmental concerns which include water conservation, ground water protection, pesticide use and safety and wet land protection.
- Serve All Members and Increase Participation Statewide
- Emphasize Education and Increase Quality of Topics and Speakers
- Promote Golf in Public and Political Sectors
- Enhance Professional Status and Image of Superintendent and Related Industries
- Coordinate a National to Local Focus and Cooperation
- Spearhead Collaborative Support for Research to Benefit the Arizona Golf Industry
