Greg Norman has renewed his support of The Environmental Institute for Golf, the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA). He will continue to serve on The Institute’s board of trustees and chair its Advisory Council for another five years.

“This is an important milestone for The Institute,” GCSAA CEO and Institute trustee Mark Woodward, CGCS, said. “By recommitting, Greg demonstrates his dedication and approval of the progress we have made towards reaching our goals. We appreciate the unique talents he brings and the passion with which he does it.”

The Advisory Council provides guidance to The Institute’s board of trustees in the areas of outreach, fundraising and strategic planning. The members are selected to enhance The Institute’s ability to cultivate relationships with current and potential donors, as well as communicate the importance of the work conducted by The Institute.

“I‘ve said from day one that if I was going to get involved with The Environmental Institute for Golf, I wanted to be actively involved,” Norman said. “I am very pleased with the progress we have made increasing environmental stewardship on golf courses and I am looking forward to building upon that.”

The Environmental Institute for Golf is a collaborative effort of the environmental and golf communities, dedicated to strengthening the compatibility of golf with the natural environment. The Institute concentrates on delivering programs and services involving research, education and outreach that communicate the best management practices of environmental stewardship on the golf course.
