Tom Kinsman, superintendent at Whistle Bear Golf Club in Cambridge, Ont., is being honoured by the Ontario Golf Superintendents Association on Sunday, June 6 for his efforts toward hosting the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic which ends June 6.

The Superintendent Recognition program was initiated in 2003 to recognize superintendents who host significant tournaments at their respective courses. The host superintendent is presented with a plaque during the awards ceremonies, recognizing their work and dedication in preparing for and managing successful tournaments.

This program has been well received by both competitors and the Golf Association of Ontario, and is integral to promoting the dedication of the golf course superintendent and their professionalism within the golf industry.
 

The presentation is to be made between 2 and 4 p.m. at the golf course by OGSA director Cory Janzen, superintendent at Westmount Golf & Country Club.

The Ontario Golf Superintendents Association is a not for profit association with more than 900 members across Ontario. The membership is made up of golf course superintendents, assistant superintendents, golf course suppliers, students, educators, owners and architects.


Part of the mandate of the association is to provide up-to-date information on the needs and challenges facing the superintendent and to elevate the status of the profession to benefit all members.
