Come join us for an unveiling of the new Environmental Institute for Golf. Over the last year, the EIFG has worked to refine its mission and vision in order to better serve golf course superintendents, the facilities they manage and the game of golf. GCSAA and EIFG President Robert Randquist, CGCS, and GCSAA CEO Rhett Evans will provide an overview on EIFG priorities and how these will benefit you and your facility. Individual and chapter supporters will share stories about experiencing EIFG's impact both personally and professionally, as well as how future support can postively affect the future of the game.
