Welcome to the South Central regional page

Welcome to the brand-new GCSAA South Central regional page! I am very excited to share all the latest news and information from the region. As the GCSAA field representative in this region since 2011, I have had the opportunity to observe many interesting agronomic and management techniques, experience innovative chapter initiatives and events, and interact with so many fantastic GCSAA members in the region. I look forward to sharing these experiences with you on a routine basis on this blog.

In 2013, my travels have taken me to the far reaches of the region I am proud to serve. From Fort Smith, Ark.; Seminole, Texas; and Albuquerque, N.M.; to Enid, Okla.; Jackson, Miss.; and Baton Rouge, La., I have enjoyed every mile of the adventure. I am privileged to work closely with the 10 very strong affiliated chapters. 

The South Central region runs the gamut of climates and agronomic conditions. Much of the region has been gripped by a historic drought for the past several years, and I have seen a significant wave of environmental awareness by the members and chapters in the region. Water conservation leads the list of these important issues that affect every golf course and member in the region. I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with superintendents as they strive to become better stewards of the precious resources they manage.

Please check back regularly to keep up with the blog and see what we are up to in the South Central region. If you have any suggestions or feedback, please shoot me an email at or comment on the blog page. It will be great to have you along in the passenger seat: Buckle up!
