Raising the bar in turf

Growing Golf

“The young person in turf is more professional, more educated and a global traveller”.

As Program Manager of The Ohio Program, Mike O’Keeffe has been at the heart of nurturing turf talent for 30 years.

In that time, he has helped pair hundreds of students from across the globe with some of the best courses in the United States. And benefit from learning alongside some of the most accomplished superintendents and turf professionals in the business.

Mike discusses his desire to see more turf professionals travel the world, gain more media recognition for the work that they do, and how he’d like to see them working together.
