The first meeting was held in October 1965 at Willow Creek Golf Course where Tom Dawson was then Superintendent.This initial meeting was attended by 18 individuals, two-thirds of which were current golf course superintendents.The name of this newly found organization was the North Carolina Superintendents Association.This was later changed to The Piedmont Triad Turf Grass Association and subsequently ended up being the close knit group we know today as The Piedmont Golf Course Superintendents Association.The professionals who formed this organization nearly 40 years ago became much closer as a group through meetings and conversations they had resulting from their affiliation as members.

Times have brought new and better technologies to our market, as well as many new challenges to our profession. No matter when or how you are involved with golf, everyone will agree that the job a Superintendent has is vital to the life of any course as a business.

Today's golfing world seems to always desire the highest quality playing conditions possible. To try and achieve those standards and meet golfer expectations, Superintendents need all the support they can get. To the PGCSA and all its members this can sometimes mean dues increases, membership drives, and a constant quest for corporate sponsors.

Everyone needs to understand our Association is a nonprofit association and 100% of the money raised through our association goes to items such as: continuing education, providing an opportunity and platform for camaraderie with fellow professionals, the image improvement of the Golf Course Superintendent, member qualified scholarship programs, community support and continual financial aid for ongoing turfgrass research.

As we continue this endeavor into the future, remember your participation does matter. We have given and will continue to give away thousands of dollars for school expenses to our member's children because they are part of our group. Financial aid has been given to people with circumstances that are beyond their control. Industry related funding for local Universities to continue with new and important research is more important now than ever.

All these services are ongoing and integral to the overall Vision and Mission set forth by that small group of dedicated individuals who formed this Association back in 1965.
