Abstract/Contents:Explains the difference between a turf equipment manager (TEM) and a mechanic. States that "an equipment manager is often a decision maker...An equipment manager is a well-organized professional who believes there is never a day when there is nothing to do...An equipment manager takes great pride in the golf course as well as the equipment and the facility...An equipment manager operates a turfgrass management facility or a similarly named structure, not a 'shop' or 'barn'...An equipment manager shows professionalism at work, during meetings and while communicating in the presence of golfers." States that "the industry gets more demanding every year, but you can take yourself to the next level with three key qualities: professionalism, organization and communication. Lacking any of these may be what is separating you from your goals."
