December 8, 2017 - First Green will be conducting a seminar at the Golf Industry Show (GIS) in San Antonio on Monday, February 5 (8 am - 5 pm), that includes a field trip with a local school and hands-on learning labs that demonstrate the tools and resources available to host STEM field trips on the golf course. This interactive workshop will teach attendees how to launch a First Green local field trip program on their home course. The workshop offers superintendents an opportunity to expand local community involvement through hosting students and teachers. Current superintendents with experience hosting this program will lead learning labs and provide real-world insight.
“This seminar was invaluable to me. I feel it is incredibly important to the future of golf and the turf industry. I've been able to do three field trip-like events here at our course this year, and the things I learned from the First Green were a huge help.”
– Galen Evans, Golf Course Superintendent, Laytonsville Golf Course
