About Green Start Academy


Green Start Academy is an all-expenses-paid, two-and-a-half-day education and networking event for assistant superintendents held at the Bayer and John Deere facilities in North Carolina. Since 2005, the goal for this program has been to help assistant superintendents build a strong foundation for their careers, as well as to support the future of golf courses and the entire industry.

Attendees will have the unique opportunity to network with peers and receive valuable insights from industry veterans. With topics from career development to budgeting to labor management, the Green Start Academy provides knowledge and tips essential to professional growth.

The Green Start Academy program is open to assistant superintendents in the U.S. and Canada only. Previous Green Start Academy participants will not be considered for participation in future events.

Thanks for your applications and congratulations to the 2014 attendees!
