Abstract:"Superintendents should mix chemicals themselves, learn everything they can about environmental regulation, urge their clubs to install a second set of tees for women, and carry cameras whenever they're on the golf course. Those were some of the highlights of the annual USGA Green Section Regional Conference at JDM Country Club [Palm Beach Gardens] April 20. According to Roger Harvie, USGA Regional Affairs manager for the Southeast, total attendance of 235 broke down to 118 superintendents, 39 golf professionals, 24 club managers, 21 club officers, 12 USGA officials, and 21 "others." The latter included architects, builders, speakers, association officials and one member of the press. Eight speakers filled six hours of education sessions with a one-hour lunch break at the midway point. Main speakers were Tim Hires [Hiers], golf course manager, John's Island Club, Vero Beach; Mike Veron, attorney and member of the USGA Green Section Committee; Kevin Downing, golf and landscape operations manager of Willoughby GC in Stuart, also a member of the USGA Green Section Committee; and Pete and Alice Dye, golf course architects from Delray Beach. Technical speakers from the University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Services were Dr. Bert McCarty from Gainesville and Dr. Monica Elliott and Dr. John Cisar from Fort Lauderdale. Moderators were F. Morgan "Buzz" Taylor, a resident of Hobe Sound and chairman of the USGA Green Section Committee and Pat O'Brien, USGA agronomist for the Southeast. After the meeting, John Foy, USGA agronomist for Florida, said the conference next year will be held at a different site. "We've outgrown this one," he said, noting that late arrivals had great difficulty seeing the projection screen. He said he will consider any site in Florida, although he pointed out that attendance dropped sharply several years ago when the conference was moved out of South Florida to Orlando on a one-year experiment."
