Facility BMP Workshop

University of Maryland Golf Course

Wednesday, March 13, 2019



Best Management Practices (BMPs) are the tools that successful superintendents use every day to maintain quality playing surfaces. The adoption of BMP plans at the facility level helps Mid-Atlantic Association of Golf Course Superintendents and GCSAA to advocate for golf course superintendents with national and local lawmakers as well as the media by demonstrating our commitment to professional land management using science-based BMPs including the responsible use of inputs.

In this workshop GCSAA staff will explain why BMPs are important at your facility and show how easy it is to use GCSAA’s tool to develop your own BMP plan. Then you’ll learn more about Maryland’s BMPs including nutrient and water management from Joe Roberts, PhD. Bring your laptop to begin working on your facility’s BMPs and leave the session with your plan well underway. In addition to the benefit of having a BMP plan, you will also earn 0.30 education points from GCSAA for attending the session, and you can also earn 0.50 service points once you complete your plan.
