PACE Turf - Turfgrass Information Center


For maximum access to all PACE Member Benefits, please consider joining the PACE Turfgrass Research Institute today. A summarized comparison of the benefits and access offered to members vs. registered participants is provided in the table below.

There are three ways to sign up for membership in the PACE Turfgrass Research Institute:

  1. Join the PACE Turfgrass Research Institute online for immediate activation of your account and access to all member benefits
  2. Join the PACE Turfgrass Research Institute off-line by printing out and mailing the Printable Membership Form with payment.
  4. Sign-up on-line and mail in payment off-line.  This method will provide participant-level access until payment is received at which time full membership will be activated.

There are two membership categories:

  • Super Members are golf course superintendents or other professional turf managers who receive all membership privileges (see table below).  In addition, Super Members may also post reports of pest incidences in the Pest Survey Forum.
  • Members are entitled to full membership benefits, but are not golf course superintendents or professional turf managers.  Members receive all membership privleges and may provide follow-up commentaries on reports in Pest Surveys.  However, only Super Members or Super Participants may post reports of pest incidences in the Pest Surveys Forum. This procedure helps prevent the reporting of duplicate pest reports from the same location.

On-line credit card transactions are executed on our secure server with Secure Site Pro excryption from VeriSign that steps old browsers up from 40 bit to 128 bit encryption to provide the best encryption and security available.
