Networking Opportunities

RGGCSA meetings and events provide a good opportunity to meet informally with your professional peers and gather important information as well as share ideas. Superintendents and assistant superintendents share information, solve problems and learn more about the local golf course industry by attending RGGCSA meetings. The value of your dues could easily be recovered by finding one inexpensive solution to a problem you are having on your golf course while attending an RGGCSA meeting.

Newsletter / Website

Stay current on industry issues with the official publication of the RGGCSA. Informational articles, happenings within the association and superintendent work tips make this a valuable resource.


The RGGCSA offers to its members education and fellowship at our association meetings throughout the year. The association also offers its members the opportunity to obtain CEUs required by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture.

Camaraderie and Golf Events

Participating in the RGGCSA supports your profession on a local basis and provides opportunity to make professional acquaintances in the local golf course industry. Golf outings organized by the RGGCSA provide more than an enjoyable release from the tensions of everyday work. Playing golf at RGGSSA courses stimulates discussion and the sharing of ideas about golf course management techniques and golf course maintenance problem solving.

Alan Salter Memorial Scholarship

The RGGCSA Alan Salter Scholarship offers a minimum $500 award to the children and grandchildren of RGGCSA members for educational aid.  The award is administered by the RGGCSA Board of Directors. Applicants will be reviewed by the RGGCSA Scholarship Committee.  All decisions of the committee are final.

Affiliate Membership

Membership is not just for superintendents. Businesses involved in selling related products or services in the turfgrass industry are encouraged to join. Affiliate members enjoy all the benefits listed above and are only limited in their ability to vote in association elections. Affiliate members have the added benefit of promoting their product and/or services in the newsletter, in the annual directory and by their level of sponsorship.
