2016 saw the Australian Turfgrass Conference staged at Melbourne’s Crown Complex.

It was great to welcome back keynote presenters Dr Frank Rossi, Ken Mangum, David Bancroft-Turner and Dr Fred Yelverton.  The plenary forum 'Recognising and dealing with stress in the workplace' is highly recommended with match (cricket) referee David Talalla opening the batting ahead of superintendents Phil Moylan and Phil Beal.
