Award Programs

Awards Descriptions

The CGSA uses a variety of award programs in order to recognize the achievements of its members in the conduct of their duties as professional golf course managers. The CGSA “Redesign” identified profiling the profession as a core activity. The award programs noted below are one of the ways in which the association profiles the work of the professional superintendent. Several of these award programs are sponsored in whole or in part by industry partners and for this we are very appreciative. The support of these companies allows us to provide a tangible component to the recognition these individuals receive as award recipients.

The Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) has changed the deadline dates on the majority of their Award Programs starting in 2016. We have selected two dates; June 30 and November 30. Each date will apply to multiple awards. This approach will help to improve program awareness and reduce confusion around submission dates. Of course, award applications can be sent anytime.

Please see the 2017 deadline dates below as well as the links to the application forms.
