“Thank you for the opportunity and privilege of attending the Summit. The concept is professionally refreshing, informative and productive. The camaraderie generated with all involved was unique and stimulated personal and professional friendships.”

Alan Easter, Golf Course Superintendent,
Southpointe Golf Club, Canonsburg, PA

“I want to express my sincere thank you to the Golfdom staff. You are a great host. The Summit was an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. It was so unique with a fantastic program, very well organized, with a great group of vendors.”

Rafael Martinez, Golf Course Superintendent,
South Hills Country Club, West Covina, CA

“This event was like a mini/early GIS preview with several new products unveiled just for us. Rather than walking the trade show floor and maybe talking to someone at the booth, this event provides direct contact with the vendors. Any questions, thoughts, concerns you may have, get answered in real time direct to you. We also got to demo all types of equipment and see how they performed under ‘real’ conditions. I can’t thank Golfdom magazine and Seth Jones enough for this opportunity. This was the best turf-related conference I’ve attended in my 20-plus year career.”
