Abstract/Contents:Discusses the results of a survey reported in the July 2007 issue of TurfNet. Suggets that "the survey questions and overall management appeared to be poorly developed...One of the biggest miscues was in how the surveys were sent out. Instead of sending them to the key turf personnel at schools, something which could have been readily done as they are all listed with the GCSAA [Golf Course Superintendents Association of America], many if not most of the surveys were sent to a school administrator. Thus, if a secretary opening the dean's or the chairperson's mail didn't forward the survey, the faculty didn't receive it."
