GCSAA 2023

Teeing Off
For the 29th consecutive year, Toro served as the presenting sponsor of the GCSAA Golf Championship in Orlando, Florida, Feb. 4 – 6. The three-day event kicks off the trade show and allows opportunities for every GCSAA member to participate in the fun and network with other members.  

Electric and Connected Product Innovations 
The latest rollouts represent Toro’s investment in research and development of tried-and-true electrified equipment. These innovations were accompanied by a new booth space to allow the products to shine and place an emphasis on autonomous technology and smart, connected solutions. 

GCSAA 2023 - Greensmaster e1026

Greensmaster® e1026
At a mowing width of 26 inches (66 cm), the electric Greensmaster e1026 offers increased productivity with the added benefit of zero engine exhaust emissions. It’s efficient, quiet and virtually maintenance-free, while boasting excellent balance and maneuverability. 

GCSAA 2023 - eHoverPro

eHoverPro™ Slope Mower
The new eHoverPro provides a zero-engine-exhaust-emission solution for golf course superintendents maintaining slopes and contoured surfaces. With low noise and hand-arm vibration, up to 25 minutes of runtime on a single interchangeable battery, a steel blade cutting system, an 18-inch cutting width and the ability to mow slopes up to 45 degrees, the eHoverPro is both comfortable and productive. 

GCSAA 2023 - Groundsmaster e3200

Groundsmaster® e3200
Toro’s world-class out-front rotary mower is now available as a battery-powered option. The Groundsmaster e3200 includes Toro’s InfoCenter™ display with battery charge status, hours, alerts, customizable settings and more. It features the same rugged 60-inch (152 cm) side or rear discharge mowing deck options built with high-strength steel for ultimate durability, and impact bumpers featured on the popular diesel-powered Groundsmaster models. 

GCSAA 2023 Workman Utility Vehicle

Workman® MDX Lithium
The battery-powered MDX comes with the same payload capacity, comfort and selection of attachments available in the gas or diesel-powered Workman MDX. The proprietary SRQ™ (Superior Ride Quality) suspension creates a smooth ride that can reduce operator fatigue. Standard on the Workman MDX line is an automotive-grade rack-and-pinion steering system that provides more control while lowering steering effort for operators.

GCSAA 2023

IntelliDash® Irrigation and Fleet Management Platform Enhancements
Golf course superintendents can monitor, manage, track and maintain the health of their operations all in one place with the recently introduced IntelliDash platform from Toro. With just a glance, superintendents can view real-time operational data, including agronomic conditions, labor, asset location and equipment health. Additionally, superintendents can use data to simplify course operations, identify inefficiencies and better allocate resources.

Giving Back
These charitable efforts reflect Toro’s desire to grow the game and invest in future generations of golf course managers and golf enthusiasts. 

GCSAA 2023

Continuing Support For First Tee
Since 1998, Toro has supported the nonprofit youth development organization First Tee through grants and equipment donations. Over 25 years, Toro has donated more than $1 million to First Tee and has committed to supporting the nonprofit through 2025. Toro’s “Growing the Game Through Impact and Inclusion” grants have helped First Tee chapters around the country reduce barriers, expand access to character-building programs and provide locations where kids from all backgrounds feel safe and welcome. 

Continuing Support For Rounds 4 Research
Toro announced a $50,000 grant to the GCSAA Foundation for continued support of the Rounds 4 Research program, which addresses the critical shortage of turfgrass research funding by auctioning donated rounds of golf online. Since 2012, Toro has contributed $550,000 to Rounds 4 Research. 

Melrose Programs Offer Unique Experience For GCSAA Members
Thanks to funding from the Kendrick B. Melrose Family Foundation, 12 GCSAA members had the opportunity to attend the 2023 GCSAA Conference and Trade Show. The members are participants in the Melrose Leadership Academy and Melrose Equipment Management Experience and were chosen through an application process based on financial need, involvement in communities through volunteer efforts and a drive to progress in their careers. Both programs were founded by the late Ken Melrose, former CEO and chairman of Toro, and longtime supporter of GCSAA.

Watson Fellowship Recipients Attend GCSAA Conference and Trade Show
Cathryn Chapman, Brandi Merrick and Stephanie Rossi are the recipients of the 2022 Dr. James Watson Fellowship and $5,000 scholarship. Named after the late James R. Watson, Ph.D., a pioneer and visionary in turfgrass research and vice president at Toro, the fellowship recognizes students in postgraduate degree programs who have been identified as scientists who will be leaders in turfgrass management.
