The Advanced Golf Course Management Certificate builds on the first certificate. The advanced certificate focus is on recognizing, characterizing, and managing turf under environmental stress.
COST: $699 USD
The Advanced Golf Course Management Certificate was developed as a compliment to the Golf Course Management Certificate. The advanced course takes a more in depth look at the environmental factors like light, temperature, moisture, and water quality that can both promote turfgrass development and health or injury.
For each certificate the subject area is broad enough to be applicable to turf conditions globally. The on-line lectures were developed by leading turfgrass researchers and educators at The Ohio State University specifically for golf course management.
Regardless of location, the program was created for individuals to work at their own pace and at a time most suited for them. Course presentations, references, faculty interaction, and testing are completed on-line. The only requirement is that the each course be completed within a 10-week period. The Golf Course certificate program has been approved for 0.35 GCSAA educational points.
