Maeder was invited to participate in and share his expertise at the first-ever Donald Ross Roundtable during the ASGCA’s annual meeting in March 2015, held at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, California. Following the roundtable, Rick Robbins, past president of the ASGCA from 2013-14, presented Maeder with a plaque to commemorate the inaugural event. 

The goal of the roundtable is to have an open dialogue on the state of the golf industry, the direction of the ASGCA and the role of members and partners in furthering the organization’s goals.

Profile Golf™ is a proud, longtime partner of the ASGCA in industry education. Since 2012, the groups have worked together to create new educational programming and tools to help ASGCA members work more effectively in golf course development and remodeling. 

Profile Golf also offers a portfolio of products designed to establish, maintain and improve the turf and vegetation of every part of a course. Profile experts also provide consultative resources for root zone enhancement, erosion control and vegetative establishment. The company offers workshops on soil structure and chemistry, and how to establish soil as a healthy foundation for more reliable, sustainable grow-ins. There is also an exclusive online challenge/solutions gallery for ASGCA members to help architects learn from each others’ project experiences.  

“At Profile, we’re increasingly proud of our support of the ASGCA and feel our relationship with its membership has been strengthened through opportunities like the Donald Ross Roundtable,” said Maeder. “We look forward to participating in the future and contributing our thoughts, wherever possible, to help the golf industry thrive."
