ATM Volume 14.4 out now
The July-August 2012 edition of Australian Turfgrass Management Journal (Volume 14.4) has been delivered this past week. Gary Lisbon’s stunning aerial photo of the 15th hole at Cape Kidnappers in New Zealand features on the front cover of this edition in recognition of course superintendent and AGCSA member Steve Marsden’s unique feat achieved at the recent Australian Turfgrass Conference.
By winning the 2012 AGCSA Claude Crockford Environment Award Marsden completed a treble of major environmental awards in the past 12 months, adding the AGCSA award to those already received from the NZGCSA and GCSAA. This edition includes profiles on all the AGCSA Award winners, with the exception of Distinguished Service Award recipient John Odell who we will feature in the September-October edition.
