Introducing the Turfheads Guide to Grilling

Golf Course Industry, AQUA-AID Solutions celebrating the art and science of outdoor cooking among golf maintenance professionals.


Golf Course Industry and AQUA-AID Solutions are cooking up a flavor-filled, hunger-satisfying and engaging program for golf maintenance professionals.

To honor the connectivity and creativity demonstrated through grilling, smoking and barbecuing, we’re introducing the “Turfheads Guide to Grilling.” The program begins immediately and is designed to inspire turfheads to celebrate the camaraderie outdoor cooking provides. 

We’re encouraging industry professionals everywhere to share glamour shots of food on a grill or serving plates, cooking videos, team-bonding images, recipes, and tips. Participating in the program is easy. Use #TurfheadsGrilling and tag @GCIMagazine and @Solutions4Turf on social media posts. If social media isn’t your thing, you can email images, recipes and tips to Golf Course Industry editor-in-chief Guy Cipriano (, managing editor Matt LaWell ( or national sales manager Russ Warner (

Materials will be collected throughout the year and shared in a printed “Turfheads Guide to Grilling” insert in the December Turfheads Take Over issue of Golf Course Industry. Industry professionals whose materials are chosen for the printed guide will be eligible to win a team cookout in 2022. 

“AQUA-AID Solutions is proud to partner with Golf Course Industry on the Turfhead Grilling campaign,” AQUA-AID Solutions President Sam Green says. “During 2020 we all valued cooking and family dinners more than ever. A unique set of circumstances allowed us to have time to be more creative, and cooking and sharing these experiences seemed to allow a sense of normalcy. I know with my own family we had a lot of fun creating new meals. The turf world is closely connected and the cookbook allows turf managers around the globe to come together in a relaxed fun-filled platform. I, for one, am looking forward to the banter back and forth between turfies during this campaign."

Look for more grilling-themed conversation throughout the year on the Off the Course podcast, Golf Course Industry and AQUA-AID Solutions websites, Fast & Firm enewsletter, and Twitter and Facebook using #TurfheadsGrilling.

“We’re absolutely pumped to begin this program with our friends at AQUA-AID Solutions,” Cipriano says. “It’s no secret turfheads enjoy the process and results of grilling. Creating a team-first culture has never been more important in the golf industry and cookouts are an important part of building that culture. We’re encouraging our audience to share the details of this program with everybody on their team. The goal is to get a far-reaching collection of recipes and ideas from various parts of the United States and beyond. Who knows? Maybe you’ll gain an idea or two to add zing to your team or family meals.”
