Annually the Green Committee, on behalf of the Membership Committee, conducts a Greens Operations Study. The study is done in conjunction with area superintendents at WPGA Member Clubs. All Member Clubs are encouraged to submit a survey. Clubs are recognized for their participation but results of the questionnaire are kept anonymous and are reported in categories by overall club maintenance budget. All WPGA Member Clubs are welcome to the results of the study. Contact the WPGA office by email or phone (412-826-2180) to obtain a copy of the study.

The USGA Green Section has a regional office in Pittsburgh. Check on whether your club subscribes to the USGA’s Turf Advisory Service. The Agronomist is Keith Happ, USGA Green Section. You can contact the regional Green Section office by email or phone at (412)341-5992.
