Places to be: the Golfdom booth

Hey everyone!

If you're a superintendent on the Golfdom email list, you just received an email from us. A lot of the content in that email makes me blush (these guys are way too proud of me) but some of that information is actually REALLY COOL.

In my opinion, the lead item of this thing should have read, "Stop by the Golfdom booth to win a trip to Pinehurst!" If you're a super, you have to come by and get registered. That's an all-expense paid trip to No. 2. That's AWESOME.

You can also get your favorite golf hole entered into FMC's "Hole of the Month." We need stunning golf holes for this feature, let us know if we should use a hole from your course!

We also announced the schedule of the Golfdom booth. We'll have people at our booth all day both days, so any time is a good time to stop by and get a copy of the magazine or learn more about the Golfdom Summit.

If you would like to see some of the "new guys" with Golfdom, well, we'll be there also. Here's the schedule, and the entire contents of the email that just went out, below.

Hope to see you at the GIS!


Stop by the Golfdom booth to meet our new editor-in-chief, Seth Jones, as well as two of our new contributing editors, Clark Throssell, Ph.D., and Anthony Williams, CGCS, CGM. We're excited about all three! Seth is a 13-year veteran of the turf magazine business, having put in all of his time previously at GCM. Clark Throssell is the former director of research for the GCSAA, as well as the former director of Purdue University's turf program. Anthony Williams is the director of grounds at Stone Mountain (Ga.) Golf Club and the first two-time national winner of the Golf Digest/GCSAA Environmental Leaders in Golf Award, as well as one of Golf Inc.'s "20 most admired golf operators." Each will be at the booth during the following hours to meet and talk to Golfdom's subscribers and show attendees:

Wednesday and Thursday Hours 1-2 p.m. -- Clark Throssell 2-3 p.m. -- Seth Jones 3-4 p.m. -- Anthony Williams

While you are at our booth you can submit your name for consideration on two exciting opportunities for you and your course:

First you can submit your name for consideration to be invited to the Golfdom Summit Nov. 12th - 14th 2011 at Pinehurst Resort, Pinehurst Village, NC. The Golfdom Summit is an invitation-only forum bringing together superintendents, suppliers, and dealers of products used for maintenance, construction, design and operation of golf courses. Through education, conceptualization, and networking this summit will offer strategic level insights into what leaders should be doing to help them prepare their business to overcome any obstacles that may lie ahead. All superintendents invited will receive a fully hosted package including airfare, deluxe hotel accommodations, and access to networking events, as well as a round of golf on Course #2 at Pinehurst!

Drop by the booth and submit your name for consideration and one lucky superintendent from the show will be selected to receive an invitation to the Summit. The selection will be announced at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Golfdom booth.

While at the Golfdom booth you will also have the opportunity to submit your course for consideration to be featured in the Golfdom Hole of the Month feature which appears regularly in Golfdom magazine. Hole of the Month - sponsored by FMC - is a spread feature offering a scenic shot of the selected hole with information about the hole layout, playability, and maintenance challenges faced by the course superintendent. Submit your course for consideration to be featured in Golfdom magazine!
