Turf Greens


SUNY Cobleskill has an A.A.S. program in Turfgrass Management. The majority of students pursuing the two-year degree specialize in golf course management. The Plant Science department offers more than 75 courses enabling students to gain knowledge in many areas of horticulture. The SUNY Cobleskill Turfgrass Management program is highly respected by industry employers. The College has excellent turfgrass facilities including fairway turf plots composed of creeping bentgrass and of low mow Kentucky bluegrass that are used for research and student projects. There are also two USGA greens adjacent to the Plant Science building that are used extensively for turfgrass management labs. Students also gain additional experience on the athletic fields and lawn areas and at the Cobleskill Golf and Country Club, which is located only a few miles from campus. Low student-to-faculty ratios and a campus mission that focuses on teaching create a student friendly-environment at SUNY Cobleskill.
