Kevin Hicks sits down with Jeff Jensen, GCSAA Field Staff Rep for the Southwestern United States. His involvement with the GCSAA chapters in that region make him an important voice in some of the "front line" issues facing the golf industry today. Our discussion covered the broad topics of water rights, land use, and what the industry needs to do to ensure they have input regarding who gets the dwindling water supply in the southwestern US. We discussed Jeff’s path to his current position, which has set him up to be a valuable asset to the industry and its interests.
There’s lots of great information in this interview that can serve as a template for other regions that will be facing many of the same issues in the near future.
