The Turf Management major prepares students for careers in the golf course, sports turf, and lawn care industries.   Graduates serve as golf course superintendents, sports field managers, and lawn care specialists.  The curriculum provides a strong base in plant and soil science with many technical classes in turf management.   Considerable class time is spent visiting nearby turf facilities and doing hands-on activities on the College’s putting green, lawns, and sports fields.  The highlight of the program is the required work experience.
