IGM's Brad Rook Recertified as CGCS

Congratulations to Brad Rook, Director of Agronomy for IGM at Silver Lakes Country Club for having completed his recertification and retaining the designation as of Certified Golf Course Superintendent. Brad was first certified on July 19th, 1994 and this is the second recertification he has completed.

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.

"Achieving and maintaining such a high level of expertise in this field is truly something to be proud of" commented Steve Gano, IGM VP of Operations. The rest of us at IGM agree. Great job Brad!
