    Our Agronomy Advisory Board Mailbag: Quarter Three edition is brought to you by Nufarm. We are approaching the most important purchasing season of the year for Superintendents. Some of our members are almost hot off the heels of another grueling summer.

    Over the last three months, VGM Club has been working on updating our data to create a better experience for our members. The more we know about your club, the better we can communicate with you. Every VGM Club associate updated information about more than 100 clubs to reflect their most up-to-date amenities and opportunities. This project is part of a concerted effort to send our members relevant solutions. If your club does not have a pool, why do you want an email that includes pool solutions?

Our booth was a place to relax, grab something to drink, and hang out in our backyard. This year we wanted to take that idea up a notch, so we are going to park this food truck in our booth and serve food samples from our friends at Sysco, beverages from PepsiCo, and be decked from head to toe

    Written by Mike Woltz, Director of Business Development – Agronomy During the leadup to the Golf Industry Show this past month, we interviewed a few of our members speaking at the event. As the Director of Business Development – Agronomy, I was interested in the entire piece, but one particular question we asked every single interviewee was, “How do you plan to grow as a manager in 2018?” As I read the responses, it got me thinking about how our jobs parallel in one
