2018 TurfNet Technician of the Year Award

The nomination period for the 2018 Technician of the Year Award, presented by The Toro Company is now open.


A good equipment manager is the backbone of any successful golf turf-management operation, and TurfNet has been recognizing the efforts of great wrench-turners since 2003.


A panel of judges will select three finalists and a winner based on the following criteria: crisis management; effective budgeting; environmental awareness; helping to further and promote the careers of colleagues and employees; interpersonal communications; inventory management and cost control; overall condition and dependability of rolling stock; shop safety; and work ethic.


The winner will receive the Golden Wrench Award (a real gold-plated wrench) from TurfNet and a admittance to a training session at Toro's Service Training University at the company's headquarters in Bloomington, Minnesota. Toro will cover the cost of tuition for the winner and will provide a $500 travel stipend.


The nomination deadline is April 30.
