July 3, 2019 – The class of 2019 of Canada’s Top 10 Under 40 has been helping to shape the future of the Canadian turf and grounds maintenance industry since entering the profession, and these young individuals are poised to ensure that the qualities of leadership, innovation and teamwork are in strong supply for years to come.

This year marks Turf & Rec’s second consecutive mission to find the best young talent in the industry in Canada who have yet to reach their 40th birthdays. Whether they are employed in the golf, landscaping, sports turf or other sector of the industry, these chosen individuals have made significant contributions to their profession over the years and are setting an example for their peers, paving the way for the next wave of up-and-coming professionals.

Turf & Rec wishes to thank The Toro Company for its sponsorship of the Top 10 Under 40 program.

This week we feature Kevin Moores, 33, superintendent at Oakfield Golf & Country Club in Halifax.

Born in Cole Harbour, N.S., Moores’ love of turf began at the age of 16. His ascent to becoming a golf superintendent was rapid and is a testament to his skill set and thoughtful approach.

He graduated from the University of Guelph’s turfgrass management program in 2012. As part of his studies, he completed an internship at Quail Hollow Golf Club in Charlotte, N.C. – site of the PGA Tour’s Wells Fargo Championship. Upon graduation, he was hired by the Weston Golf & Country Club in Toronto and shortly afterward took a position as assistant superintendent at the Ashburn Golf Club in Halifax. In 2015, he was offered the assistant superintendent’s position at the Oakfield Golf & Country Club to begin a new challenge.

Moores moved up the ladder the following season, becoming superintendent at the club. He recently joined the Atlantic Golf Superintendents Association’s board of directors and is excited about being host superintendent this summer for a PGA Mackenzie Tour event.

When he’s not busy at Oakfield, he spends his time with his fiancé Jessica and stepdaughter Claire and enjoys playing golf and softball as well as weighlifting.
