Last week the management of our Golf course and Grounds Dept. attended the Ontario Golf Superintendents Association Annual Conference and Trade Show. This year's program was packed with seminars regarding the hottest topic of late, Integrated Pest Management. As all golf courses are required by provincial law to be fully certified (to continue to apply pesticides) by 2012, these were very well attended lectures. Speakers from all facets of the turf management field shared information including completing the certification process as well as implementation of alternative practices and products. This is always a great opportunity to network with friends, colleagues and instructors.
