Delaware’s Golf Course Best Management Practices
Delaware’s Golf Course Best Management Practices committee is proud to announce the publication of the document Best Management Practices for Delaware Golf Courses and its companion website (delawaregolfbmp.org).
Delaware’s golf course superintendents, in partnership with University of Delaware scientists, developed these research-based, voluntary guidelines specifically for the state of Delaware. In addition, state agency representatives from a number of departments within the Delaware Dept. of Natural Resources and the Delaware Department of Agriculture reviewed these guidelines in draft final form and their input provided valuable assistance in finalizing the guidance.
In addition to the state’s pesticide regulations, these BMPs not only protect natural resources, they also afford the opportunity for superintendents to be recognized by club members, the community at large, and state officials as environmental stewards.
Superintendents can begin using our state BMPs to enhance your facility operations, as a communication tool for golfers at your facility, and as a learning experience for your staff. The GCSAA has developed an on-line tool that allows superintendents anywhere in Delaware to use the state BMPs and then adapt specifically for your facility. More information on using the GCSAA’s on-line tool is available on their website at www.gcsaa.org.
21st Annual Silent Auction and Crab Feast
Dear Association Member and Industry Affiliate,
The 21st Annual Silent Auction and Crab feast will be held on August 27, 2019. This event has been a great success for the Eastern Shore Golf Course Association due to generous vendor support as well as the Superintendents that participate in the Silent Auction.
In 2018, our association generated over $14,000 which was donated to the University of Maryland Foundation research program, the Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation and the Stewards of the Chesapeake. This year’s benefactors will include:
- Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation in Ocean City Maryland
- Stewards of the Chesapeake
- University of Maryland Foundation- Research program
To make the event even more successful this year, your continued support is needed. Your donations of control products, gift certificates, services, equipment, golf packages and door prizes for the auction will enable the organization to continue to provide support to these worthy benefactors. Food and Beverage Sponsors ($300) along with Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Title Sponsors ($300) are greatly appreciated as well and will help to offset the costs of this event in order to improve the amount of money provided to this year’s benefactors. With this sponsorship, you will receive exclusive recognition at the event.
