OHIO TURFGRASS FOUNDATION ADDS SUSTAINABILITY
TRACK TO 2011 CONFERENCE AND SHOW

The term “Sustainability” is commonly used these days in describing golf course maintenance and management. But what does it really mean? Join us at the 2011 Ohio Turfgrass Foundation (OTF) Conference and Show this December to hear what some of the industry’s leading Sustainability experts are saying about the topic.

The Sustainability program will feature panels and presentations from architects Richard Mandell, Ron Forse and Jim Nagle as well as irrigation expert, Paul Granger. Additionally, Larry Aylward from Superintendent Magazine will share his experiences from discussions with superintendents all over the country on the topic of Sustainability. Also, insurance experts David White, Mark Jordan and Craig Krenzel will discuss how protecting yourself from liabilities can ensure long-term prosperity.
