2019 GIS Recap

Videos from the GCSAA.TV Live Stage in San Diego

It was another successful year for LebanonTurf at the greatest show in golf, the Golf Industry Show (GIS) in San Diego. Attendees chose a new Dog of the Year, Rosie from Fiddler's Elbow Country Club and we had two winners take home new Apple Watches: Michael Rayman of University of Illinois Golf Practice Facility and Jared Brewster of Highland Springs Country Club.

At our booth, people got the chance to learn about our updates to the True Performance Turfgrass Program. This full season agronomic program combines Country Club MD granular products with Emerald Isle Solutions foliar products to deliver season-long, high performing putting greens. They could also sign up for a free trial bag of Country Club MD 18-0-18, to see how this featured technology works on their turf.
