  • In an effort to make the Distinguished Service Award meaningful to the recipient and the Association, the 2018 Awards Committee created the following set of guidelines. Any member can be nominated, but greatest consideration will be given to those who have distinguished themselves supporting the Minnesota Golf Course Superintendents Association.

    Date for submission is December 15th.  The required point total necessary to be considered for the MGCSA Distinguished Service Award can be a combination of any of the

    following. The minimum number of points necessary for the DSA Award is 25.

    Award and fulfilled an additional 15 points beyond those previously ac- quired. DSA recipients prior to the establishment of the new criteria will require 15 additional points in any category based on Committee suggestion.
