An internationally recognized authority on golf course environmental issues, Dr. Michael Hurzdan, ASGCA Past President, studied turf management at Ohio State University and earned a Masters degree in landscape architecture and a Ph.D. in environmental plant physiology at the University of Vermont.

Michael doesn't just design great golf courses; he is also extremely active in serving his profession and industry. He teaches two-day seminars for the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, (GCSAA) on "Design, Construction and Renovation for I.P.M." and "Golf Greens: Theory, Design, Construction and Maintenance," in addition to "Environmental Impacts of Golf Courses" for the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He is a Golf Digest panelist for the publication's environmental awards program, a selected delegate for the "Golf and Environment" conferences and serves on the education review committee for GCSAA. He is the current chairman of the professional development committee and a member of the Past President's Council. He is contributing to the professional development program for the Golf Course Builders Association of America, and the Professional Golfer's Association (PGA).

Some reviewers are heralding Michael's 400-page book on golf course architecture as "the modern bible of golf course design." Links Magazine says, "Hurdzan takes you through the design process as no one ever has, the book is so complete, it is probably all you'll ever need on this topic."
