    Ohio’s five affiliated chapters of the GCSAA have combined to partner with FOX Sports Ohio’s popular golf show, The Golf Zone with Jimmy Hanlin, to highlight the role of the golf course superintendent.

    The collaborative effort was made possible by the GCSAA’s outreach grant, where matching funds are available for programs focused on increasing awareness of the superintendent profession. The Golf Zone airs live from 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm on FOX Sports Ohio and is accessible to 5.4 million subscribers in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and New York.

    This Sunday, May 22, the new segment titled, The Superintendent Report, will make its debut and will continue every Sunday through October. In the first episode, GCSAA director and superintendent at Westfield Country Club, Mark Jordan will appear in studio to discuss his recent visit to Washington D.C. for National Golf Day as well as Ohio Turfgrass Week which is May 22-29.

    Over the next 20 weeks, the segment will be utilized to promote the golf course superintendent, the environmental benefits of golf courses, unique locations and much more. Guests will appear live in studio, by phone or in some cases, segments will be pre-recorded to give viewers an inside look at the role of the golf course superintendent.
