Paul White, a past president of the Ontario Golf Superintendents Association and a 45-year member, has passed away.

White recently retired from the profession after a long association with the OGSA, the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (of which he was president in 1992) and the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, of which he was a 49-year member.

His career as a superintendent included work at the Mississaugua Golf & Country Club and The Briars at Jackson's Point, Ont.

White's sons James and Scott are both actively working in the industry. James works for GT Golf & Turf, and Scott works for Ontario Seed Company after recently leaving the Donalda Golf Club in Toronto as superintendent.
