Nominate your Equipment Tech as TurfNet Technician of the Year!
The nomination period for the 2021 Technician of the Year Award, presented by John Deere 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 admittance to either a training session at the John Deere factory training center in Morrisville, North Carolina, or the opportunity to work at the 2022 Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
The nomination deadline is June 1.
