The Experience at FarmLinks continues to grow!
Progress on the Educational Pavilion and Offices.
Not only is progress being made on the new Educational Pavilion and Office Complex, but FarmLinks is also breaking ground on the new "Villas at FarmLinks". FarmLinks is building these villas to position FarmLinks as a "stay and play" golf destination.
The future site of the "Villas at FarmLinks." The trees to the right of the excavator are on the 18th hole fairway.
National Golf Foundation recognizes FarmLinks
In addition to being a first-class facility for golf course superintendents to learn more about their trade, FarmLinks has been the recipient of the National Golf Foundation's Customer Loyalty Award in the public golf segment four of the last five years. This award is given to the course with the highest approval ratings by its customers.
FarmLinks, along with BASF, and the other corporate partnerships here are sending the positive message through their funding that golf courses are a great improvement to communities.
GCSAA offers educational credits for Course Tour
In addition to beefing up the facilities here at FarmLinks, The Experience just got a boost from The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America. The GCSAA has recently awarded the "On the Course Tour" for 0.3 CEU presentation credits through its External Education Program. This is clearly an additional benefit for superintendents hoping to continue their professional development!
