Winter months are a time we attend education conferences. It is very important for us to stay informed on all of the new advancements learned from University research and private product development.

It is always exciting to see New Equipment at the GCSAA trade room floor. This is a massive show and was held in Orlando Florida this winter.
Dr. Rossi from Cornell University talking golf live on GCSAA TV at the trade show
GCSAA constructs a live turf green complete with bunkers in the middle of the trade room; a very impressive display. Mowers and rollers can be tested on the turf surfaces plus all of the different kinds of bunker liner options are shown in the bunkers around the green. It really gives the consumer hand on experience with the different product options.
I always appreciate winter education conferences. The people in our industry that put them on and the speakers that travel to share their knowledge are dedicated to golf.
