The inaugural CanAm Cup between superintendents from Canada and the United States will played Oct. 23-24, 2017.
More than 200 golfers from each country’s national golf course superintendents’ association will take part in a flighted competition to be held over two days at Baltusrol Golf Club (Upper and Lower courses) in Springfield, N.J., and Canoe Brook Country Club (North and South courses) in Summit, N.J.
“I think we have hit on something great for our two organizations,” said James Beebe, president of the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA).
“Our superintendent associations were forged on cooperation and learning from each other. Now, we will get to do that more than ever before while enriching our long-standing annual Fall Field Day history with this event,” he added.
The CGSA will co-sponsor the event, along with the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA).
The event, which looks to build on the history of the CGSA Fall Field Day that has been held in Canada annually since 1966, will also feature continuing education and offer an opportunity to visit New York City, as well as team networking receptions.
“There is more interaction between golf course superintendents from Canada and the U.S. than ever before, and this friendly rivalry will give us a chance to strengthen the camaraderie we have built over the years,” said Rhett Evans, CEO of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA).
