2020 GIS Recap

Videos from the GCSAA.TV Live Stage in sunny Orlando

Another year, another Golf Industry Show in the books for us here at LebanonTurf. Every year we look forward to a few days full of education, innovation and well, a little bit of fun. GIS attendees chose a new Dog of the Year (congrats, George from Hot Springs Country Club!), and we gave away tons of prizes through our in-booth prize wheel.

But it wasn’t all prizes and puppies; attendees who stopped by our booth learned a lot about our True Performance Turfgrass Program, which combines Country Club MD granular products with Emerald Isle Solutions foliar products to deliver season-long, high performing putting greens. Superintendents interested in the program could sign up for a 15-pound sample bag of Country Club MD 18-0-18 to see for themselves how this featured technology will work on their course.

Attendees also learned about our new Emerald Isle Solutions promotion which gives turf managers and crew the chance to win a $500 Amazon gift card each month and be entered into our grand prize drawing for a $5,000 donation to their local GCSAA or STMA chapter.

As a yearly sponsor, we also spent a lot of time at the GCSAA.TV Live Stage. If you were not able to make it out to GIS or catch us live, you can watch all of our segments in this month’s blog.
