GCSAA and The Toro Company Announce the 7th Annual Toro Championship Tournament Training Program

The Toro Company and the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) are pleased to offer the Toro Championship Tournament Training Program (TCTTP) for GCSAA student and assistant superintendent members. This year, six winners will experience first-hand what it takes to prepare a course for tournament play.

Two GCSAA assistant superintendent members along with one student member will travel in June 2005 to the U.S. Open at Pinehurst Resort & Country Club in Pinehurst, N.C. Plus, another set of winners will travel in August 2005 to the PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, N.J. Toro will provide all travel and accommodations for the week spent at the course.

Since the start of the program, 22 GCSAA members have been chosen to participate in a PGA Championship, U.S. Open or Ryder Cup event. One past TCTTP winner said, “This was truly an experience I will never forget. The things I learned will stay with me my entire professional career.”

Applications for the program are available at www.gcsaa.org/resources/awards/toro/. A 500-word typed essay will be part of the program selection process. All applications and essays must be submitted to the GCSAA, postmarked no later than April 1, 2005. An independent panel of judges will select finalists based upon the essays submitted and the site superintendents will select the winners. The Toro Company will notify winners in May 2005.
