Etobicoke, ON (September 26, 2017) - The Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) and BrettYoung are pleased to announce their new partnership agreement that will see BrettYoung becoming a bronze sponsor of The Canadian Golf Course Management Conference (CGCMC) opening SociALL.

“We are pleased that BrettYoung, a recognized CGSA supporter, is continuing to support the SociALL,” said Jim Flett, AGS, CGSA President. “The opening SociALL has been a highlight of The Canadian that kicks off the conference and allows registrants and industry the opportunity to network in a relaxed environment.”

“BrettYoung really believes in the importance of a national association in the Canadian golf industry and this sponsorship is part of our commitment to its success,” said Travis Unger, Vice-President of BrettYoung’s Professional Turf & Reclamation business unit. “We are excited to support a great event in Quebec City.”

The CGCMC opening SociALL will be on Tuesday, February 27 in Quebec City, Quebec during the conference which runs from February 26 – March 1 2018 and will feature exclusive education sessions that will inform, intrigue and stimulate those in the turf management profession. The education program will focus on business and leadership topics and innovative turf subjects. The CGCMC also offers Canada’s largest golf management trade show, hosted in a setting that will provide valuable networking and social activities, all at the same price point as 2016.
