Congratulations to the 2017 Super Social Media Award Winners!

Each year Aquatrols and Golf Course Industry Magazine team up to recognize superintendents and organizations in the golf industry that do the best job of using social media to communicate about programs, practices, and the industry at large.

The winners of the 2017 Super Social Media Awards were unveiled last week on Twitter.

See the full list of winners below and be sure to connect with them on their preferred social networks. If you’ll be in Orlando for the Golf Industry Show, we invite you to join us in Booth 2559 on Wednesday, February 8 at 3:00 PM as the winners are recognized during the 6th annual #GCITweetUp17. The Tweet Up takes place during Aquatrols’ annual booth happy hour, so there will be plenty of cold beverages on us!

Can’t make it to Orlando? You can follow along with all of the festivities on Twitter by following @GCIMagazine & @Aquatrols and using the #GCITweetUp17 hash tag!
