New TV feature spotlights Ohio superintendents

Published online: Jun 01, 2016 Golf News

Five GCSAA chapters in Ohio have partnered with Fox Sports Ohio’s golf show, “The Golf Zone with Jimmy Hanlin.”

Through the collaboration, a new segment called “The Superintendent Report” will air every Sunday through October and feature area superintendents. The first episode featured Mark Jordan, CGCS, GCSAA director and superintendent at Westfield Country Club. Jordan discussed his participation in National Golf Day last week, as well as Ohio Turfgrass Week, May 22-29. The program broadcasts from 8-10 p.m. on Sundays and reaches 5.4 million subscribers in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and New York.

The partnership was made possible through the GCSAA Chapter Outreach Grant Program, which provides matching funds for local or regional programs geared toward increasing awareness of the superintendent profession.
