Turfgrass Rundown – Breaking the Turfgrass Ceiling

Breaking the Turfgrass Ceiling – a documentary web series – goes behind the scenes at the US Women’s Open golf tournament to share the unique stories of women in the turfgrass industry. In this first-of-its-kind docu-series, 30 female turfgrass professionals break new ground in the industry as part of an all-volunteer crew helping care for the historic Pine Needles golf course. In 15 episodes, which run in length from 3-12 minutes, the series gets personal with the crew as we hear heartfelt stories about a love for turf, maintenance, course architecture and the golf industry. We witness the tight bonds within this group of women who often feel like unicorns in an industry that is less than 2% women. We see them in action – mowing fairways in the dark, cutting cups at sunrise and hand mowing and hand watering the greens — for the best players in the world. Episodes drop every Friday starting Feb. 10, 2023! Click here to view a teaser.
