NTA Puts Together 1-2-3 Punch for Annual Conference
The Northwest Turfgrass Association has put together a virtual 1-2-3 punch for its 66th annual conference, set for this fall on Oct. 28-30. First, Tim Moraghan, the former director of championship agronomy for the USGA, will be the featured speaker both days of the conference. Secondly, legendary Oregon State University researcher and educator Tom Cook will come out of retirement to lead a panel discussion. And thirdly, everything happens at Bandon Dunes, one of the most magical golf destinations in the world.
The basic complete registration package will be $550 and include two nights lodging at the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. The rates are based on double occupancy, so you can either find a friend to room with, or we can set you up with a roommate for the two nights.
Registration begins Sunday, Oct. 28 at 11:30 a.m. at the resort on the Southern Oregon coast with golf Sunday afternoon on Bandon Trails. A welcoming dinner reception will be held Sunday night.
Educational sessions start Monday morning and Mr. Moraghan, the principal of Aspire Golf Consulting, will have a talk both Monday and Tuesday mornings. Golf will be played Monday afternoon on Old Macdonald, the newest 18-hole course at Bandon Dunes.
The NTA’s annual business meeting will be Tuesday morning followed by another educational session and then a panel discussion to be moderated by Mr. Cook.
