BRUCE Constable, superintendent at Woodside Golf Course in Airdrie,
Alta., has been named an “international facilities” winner in the 2009
Golf Course Superintendents Association of America and Golf Digest
“Environmental Leaders in Golf Awards” program.
He and the program’s other winners were officially recognized at the GCSAA’s education conference in San Diego, Calif. in February.
“The 2009 ELGA winners do a tremendous job of highlighting the importance of environmental stewardship in golf, as well as the environmental leadership of GCSAA members,” said GCSAA president Mark Kuhns. “The winners, along with their facilities, have demonstrated that golf courses can be compatible with the environment, and in many cases enhance it.”
The program’s winners will be featured in a coming issue of Golf Digest.
Presenting partners of the ELGA program are Syngenta and Rain Bird Corp.’s golf division.
