GMANZ and New Zealand Golf Course Superintendents Summit scheduled for 2021

POSTED ON October 5, 2020 @ 3:03 pm

2-Day Combined Summit and Fine Turf Seminar Auckland 13th-15th June 2021

Prospering in an unreal world

In these uncertain times, it is the obligation of both the Golf Managers Association of New Zealand (GMANZ)and the New Zealand Golf Course Superintendents Association Inc.(NZGCSA) to provide the best outcomes for New Zealand’s Golf industry by bringing golf managers and golf course superintendents together in a safe and collaboratory manner to discuss opportunities to grow the game in these unusual times.

Working in our own silos will not have the impact needed to survive in what is a highly competitive sporting-based environment. We need to be able to work together across both our sectors if we are going to have a real impact.

The secret about collaborating and cross-sectoral work is it requires us to work in new and different ways. It can be hard, and it requires us to give things up or to renegotiate loyalties.  It requires us to care about the things that our collaborators care about. But when it works, it can be powerful.

We think it is important that we share what we are learning.  We are not great at collaboration in Aotearoa New Zealand and the challenges we need to navigate are going to force us to do more and more of it.  So, if we are going to get better at it, let us learn from each other.

We look forward to sharing further details of the planned Summit as we progress our planning.
