IGM's Melanie Mark Recertified as CGCS

Congratulations to Melanie Mark, IGM’s East Florida Regional Manager for having completed her recertification and retaining the designation as of Certified Golf Course Superintendent. Melanie has also received special recognition for her designation as our company’s most attractive certified golf course superintendent.

Certification is achieved through the GCSAA which offers golf course superintendents a professional certification program enabling them to be recognized for their superior levels of achievement in golf course management. The professional designation (CGCS) Certified Golf Course Superintendent is bestowed upon those who voluntarily meet the stringent requirements. This designation is the most widely recognized in the golf industry and the highest level of recognition to be achieved. Only 25% of GCSAA Class A members are certified golf course superintendents.
"Melanie exemplifies the kind of hard work and dedication needed to achieve and maintain the turf industries' most prestigious designation. She is truly an asset to our team" commented Greg Plotner, IGM Executive Vice President.
From the entire IGM team, congratulations Mel!
