The Canadian Golf Superintendents Association has announced that Sylvain Nadon, equipment technician at Club de Golf Rosemere in Rosemere, Que., is the CGSA Equipment Technician of the Year Award recipient for 2013.
Nadon’s entire 32-year career has been spent at Rosemere. He has worked for five superintendents during that period.
According to the association, his longevity is a testament to his ability and his willingness to learn and adjust his knowledge and approach to fit the equipment changes that have occurred as well as the changes in the personality of the five superintendents.
He has also shared his skills and abilities with others in his profession and has worked with agronomists around the world.
The CGSA Equipment Technician of the Year Award will be presented to Nadon by Neill Smith from John Deere Golf as part of the 2014 CGSA Awards Luncheon on Tues., Feb. 18 at the Vancouver Convention Centre as part of the 2014 Canadian International Turfgrass Conference and Trade Show.
