The big show, anchored by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA), was held Feb. 23-Feb. 26 in San Antonio, with most activities occurring at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. Here are some of the things we saw and heard at the show:

Jacobsen, keeping with its theme of past years, continued its “orange is everywhere” campaign in full force at the show. But this time, being the show was in the Lone Star state, Jacobsen went big, as in Texas-sized.

Its booth, of course, was decked out in orange. There was also a marching band dressed in orange outside the convention center. Jacobsen-branded riverboats cruised the San Antonio River.

“Our increased presence at the Golf Industry Show is a reflection of our continued business strategy of building relationships,” said David Withers, president of Jacobsen.

Jacobsen also held a Texas-sized party for its customers at Pedrotti’s North Wind Ranch, which featured an outdoor rodeo and an inside bucking bull, the latter of which Rod Wilkinson of D&K Products took for a ride.Jacobsen bull
