Due to the foresight of the 2013 Victorian Golf Course Superintendents Association's Committee of management together with the sponsorship of Bayer Environmental Science, a Green Folder was distributed to member golf course Superintendents late in 2014 inclusive of one article and was intended as a progressive folder with articles to be added along the way. The VGCSA Committee has selected articles with topics that it considers to be of interest to most golf course Superintendents in their daily task of managing the golf course. These informative articles are sourced from within the Turf industry with a focus on golf course maintenance.

Inclusive of the article included in the distributed Folder, 20 articles have been selected and these may be sourced on this page through the table below. Further articles that come to the Committee's attention will be added to the Library on this page and members will be notified.

The Committee envisages that members will find the Library contents an invaluable tool in your everyday work situation. Sharing of this knowledge is designed to contribute further to the development of a cohesive and professional golf turf industry. We thank the contributors for their willingness to be published in this way and trust that these articles will be a well used source of information.
