Melrose Leadership Academy

The Melrose Leadership Academy supports the professional development of GCSAA superintendents by providing individuals the opportunity to attend the Golf Industry Show.

A Testimony from Les Carpenter

Melrose Leadership Academy Recipient

It's that time of year again! The Melrose Leadership Academy enrollment period is open. I'm again hoping to encourage all those who are eligible to apply for this valuable GCSAA program.

Many think they will not be considered but more than half of last year's applicants were awarded the trip!

This program offers a completely funded trip to the Golf Industry Show in San Diego. The package includes airfare, hotel accommodations, education and leadership training, and some extra spending cash.

Check out the application requirements and GO FOR IT! It was a very rewarding experience for me and it will be for you too.

Thank you,

Les Carpenter
