Turfgrass Management Program

The Turfgrass Management program includes topics of interest in Turfgrass Management, Pesticide Application, Irrigation Systems, Landscaping, Soils, and Plants. The program will utilize facilities on campus, such as the athletic complexes, residential life building landscaping, as well as general field and campus landscaping maintenance. The student will leave the program with valuable knowledge and experience to be able to maintain personal residences, golf courses, athletic fields and parks.

A second option of study allows the student to take the four core Turfgrass Management Classes: Principles of Horticulture, Woody Plants and Trees, Herbaceous Plant Materials, and Landscape Design Techniques I. The student will also take general education classes, such as Biology, Chemistry, Finite Math, Economics and Western Civilization, which will allow him/her to start in the Turfgrass Management program at a university.

This program will give the students hands-on experience of taking skills learned in the classroom directly to Willow Ridge Golf Course for implementations.
