A Guide for Green Committee Members September 15, 2015

As a Green Committee member, you have the responsibility to help oversee and direct considerable expenditures for the maintenance and improvement of your golf course.

Now you share directly in the responsibility of maintaining this pride for your golf course!

This booklet is desgined to help guide you past the pitfalls, show you the opportunities and assist in making your work an asset to your golf course and the environment. Some people will say that the job of the Green Committee chairman (or 'member') is the most thankless task in the world.
