On June 6, 1932 a group of twenty green keepers representing Berkeley GC, Burlingame CC, California GC, Castlewood CC, Claremont CC, Contra Costa CC, Crystal Springs GC, El Camino CC, Ingleside CC, Lake Merced CC, Los Gatos CC, Menlo CC, Millbrae CC, Monterey Peninsula CC, Orinda CC, Pebble Beach CC, San Jose CC, Sequoyah CC, Stanford GC, Sunnyside CC, Vallejo CC, met at the Presidio Golf Club in San Francisco, California to form the Northern California Greenkeepers Association.

By October of that year, they had established what would be a continuing educational, business and social relationship with golf course superintendents and industry businesses represented by The Berg Company, Bishop Company, Buckner Manufacturing, H.V. Carter Co, Economy Sprinkler Company, Seven Vincent Company, and Westinghouse Electric Company. 

The business, education and social happenings of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of Northern California are represented in the pages of Thru the Green, the official publication of the association.

This archive, an ongoing cooperative project of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of Northern California and the Michigan State University Libraries, features Thru the Green content from 1972 to the present.
