golf heritage society to exhibit at gcsaa conference and trade show

Pittsburgh, Pa. (Dec. 10, 2021) – The Golf Heritage Society ( will have a presence at the GCSAA Conference and Trade Show, to take place Feb. 5-10, 2022, in San Diego. The GHS will be located in booth #2059, where attendees can interact with leaders of the Society to discover all the GHS has to offer. 

“We look forward to being part of the GCSAA Conference and Trade Show, the golf course management industry’s largest event,” said Dr. Bern Bernacki, president of the GHS. “The GHS leadership will have the opportunity to share with GCSAA members and other attendees the various ways in which the Society honors and preserves the history of the game in all its aspects.”

One unique fact connecting the GHS and the GCSAA is that Mel Lucas, who was the fourth president of what was then known as the Golf Collectors Society, also served as president of the GCSAA, in 1980. He is the only person to have served that role in both organizations. Lucas recently published what is sure to become a classic on the subject of greenkeeping, Golf’s Cause and Effect – A History of Greenkeeping. (
