The Board of Directors of the AGSA made the decision that it is mandatory for all members to hold a valid pesticide license.  It has become so important for us, as leaders in the golf industry, to be pro active when it comes to pesticide application.  To be able to show government officials, golf club representatives and other agencies that our members are certified and promote responsible use, is a great step in the challenge to retain their use.


If you are interested in becoming a member please email the AGSA office and we will send an application to you.


If you have any questions please call (587) 796-1094.
