  • The 2013 CGSA Awards Luncheon will take place at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel in downtown Toronto on Sunday January 27th as part of the Canadian International Turfgrass Conference and Trade Show.  The conference and awards program this year will also feature presentations by the Ontario Golf Superintendents Association (OGSA), as co-hosts of the conference, and by the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame. 

    “The Bayer sponsorship will enable us to recognize those individuals within our profession and our industry that have displayed a level of professionalism in their approach to golf course management so as to warrant some special attention,” said Tim Kubash, MS, President of the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association. “This marks the ninth year that Bayer Environmental Science has helped the CGSA honour some of its highest achievers.” 

    Wil McMurdo, Director of Bayer Environmental Science in Canada, says, “Our partnership with the CGSA will ensure that those individuals that are innovators and early adaptors within the golf course management profession will continue to be recognized in a suitable forum.   Superintendents will be duly recognized for their achievements, further enhancing their professional position within the golf sector. Appropriate recognition will encourage further innovation and, ultimately, the golfers and the golf courses that the superintendents manage will benefit.” 

    The Awards Luncheon program includes the presentation of the John B Steel Award for distinguished service as well as the Superintendent of the Year, the Environmental, the Future Superintendent of the Year and the Gordon Witteveen Awards. In addition, several other individuals are recognized at this event for their contributions or service to the CGSA. 

    As an added component to the 2013 event the OGSA will be presenting several long service, communication and scholarship related awards and the CGHOF will be inducting Gordon Witteveen into the Hall.  The Witteveen induction ceremony will be only the second such ceremony recognizing the achievements and contributions of a superintendent to the game of golf in Canada. 

    The CGSA represents over 1400 golf course superintendents, assistant superintendents, equipment technicians and golf course management personnel from across Canada.  The Association is committed to excellence in golf course management and environmental responsibility and to promoting the value of the superintendent to the success of the golf facility. 

    Bayer Environmental Science is dedicated to the research, development and marketing of plant protection products for the golf course, professional turf management, ornamental, and pest management industries. Bayer Environmental Science is a business unit of Bayer CropScience, one of the three pillars of Bayer AG.
