The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) was founded in 1926 when 60 superintendents met at the Sylvania Country Club in Toledo, Ohio to form the National Association of Greenkeepers of America (NAGA).

GCSAA is a golf organization that has its focus on golf course management, and provides a platform for the views and interests of golf course superintendents. It is located in Lawrence, Kansas, and provides education, information and representation to 19,000 members in around 72 countries.

The association was established to enable golf course superintendents to network and share their experiences on the maintenance and upkeep of golf courses. The association's philanthropic organization, the Environmental Institute for Golf, works to make golf more compatible with the natural environment through research grants, support for education programs and outreach efforts.

Rhett Evans became chief executive officer, January 25, 2011.[1]
