William E. "Bill" Kennedy from Chechessee Creek Club in Okatie, S.C., is the new president of the 1,800-member Carolinas Golf Course Superintendents Association.
Kennedy was elected last week at the annual business meeting during the association's Conference and Trade Show in Myrtle Beach. He is the 43rd president in the history of the association, which was founded in 1954.
Carolinas GCSA announced that the conference set a new high for gross revenues at nearly $667,000. Nearly 200 companies attended the trade show, occupying almost 400 booths. A record number of seats, 1,357, were filled for education seminars and the field of 339 golfers in the annual championship across three courses at Barefoot Resort also set a record.
