  • Club Benchmarking

    Club Benchmarking is driven by a single core belief: Elevating facts over opinion results in healthier clubs, more empowered managers, and more strategic boards. As the industry's only centralized data-sharing platform, Club Benchmarking (CB) arms managers and boards with the facts they need to stay focused on strategic issues and lead their clubs with confidence. CB is a powerful online tool that provides subscribing clubs with 24/7 desktop access to the very best industry data available. In-depth analysis of data from more than 1,000 clubs produces actionable information to support strategic planning and budgeting decisions and to help clubs quickly identify strengths and opportunities for improvement. Standardization of data makes it possible to accomplish comparative analysis of a club’s performance relative to peer sets or to the industry as a whole.

  • Global Turf Network

    The Mission of Global Turf Network is to provide scientifically based educational information and expertise to the turfgrass industry globally in the native language. Global Turf Network's beginnings can be traced to a small grant that was given to develop "enhanced podcasts" for educational purposes. Those podcasts were translated into Chinese, Czech, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish. Upon completion of the podcasts, we continued to expand the educational activities into what you see now. The first website globalcesped went online in the spring of 2008 followed by globalrelva, glovaldarn, and globaldrn. In August 2010 we launched the Chinese website Global China.
