The Rio Grande Chapter of Golf Course Superintendent's Association

Who We Are 

America's leading course management association

The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America is the professional association for the men and women who manage and maintain the game’s most valuable resource — the golf course. The golf industry recognizes the association as a key contributor in elevating the game and business. The Rio Grande Chapter serves the New Mexico area with over 100 members. 

What we do

At the Rio Grande Chapter of the Golf Course Superintendent's Association of America, we're committed to fostering a vibrant community of golf course professionals. Throughout the year, we host five dynamic meetings that offer a unique blend of education, networking, and camaraderie, all against the stunning backdrop of New Mexico's diverse landscapes.

Join us for Unforgettable Experiences:

Education and Insight: Our meetings are not just about networking; they're a chance to enhance your skills and knowledge. Gain valuable insights from industry experts, delve into cutting-edge techniques, and stay ahead of the curve in golf course management.

Statewide Connections: Our events are strategically located around the state, providing you the opportunity to connect with fellow superintendents and industry professionals from various regions. Forge new relationships, exchange ideas, and create lasting memories on some of New Mexico's most picturesque courses.

Golfing with Peers: After each meeting, take to the greens with your newfound friends and colleagues. Swap stories, share experiences, and enjoy a round of golf that's as much about camaraderie as it is about skill.

Earn Pesticide CEU Credits: We believe in continuous learning, which is why our events come with an educational component that grants attendees pesticide Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits. Expand your expertise while enjoying the beauty of the courses.
