Golf Course Mechanics

by Tim Davis, Superintendent, Broken Tree Golf Course 

During our Annual Meeting at the RMGCSA Symposium last November 2017, we approved the motion of adding Equipment Managers (EM) as a membership profile to our chapter.  Also, we voted to include the addition of an EM as an ex officio member of the RMGSA Board of Directors.  It is abundantly clear that our equipment manager colleagues deserve inclusion within our professional organization.  Furthermore, with GCSAA’s implementation of a new Turf Equipment Technician Certification Program, we will be in concert with the timing of promoting this integral facet of our industry. 


Please consider a membership for you equipment manager or mechanic this year.  From upcoming educational opportunities to networking and social engagements, the benefits are vast.  Not to mention, that for all new member EM’s in 2018 the membership is complimentary.  

The EM Board Member will play a major role in developing educational and networking opportunities for our EM’s and be the chief promoter for the equipment management portion of our industry and chapter.  We envision this person reaching out to trade schools and high schools, making contacts and creating pipelines from schools to jobs in the field.  This individual will be instrumental in getting the word out that being a Golf Course Equipment Manager is a flourishing and legitimate career path that is in high demand.

Our search is on for someone to fill the position of the EM Board Member.  Do not hesitate to nominate that “someone” who you think would be the “one”.  Contact any RMGCSA Board Member with your candidate.  We appreciate your involvement.
