The Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) has announced that Jeff Calderwood is its new executive director, effective October 2.
Calderwood is well known in the golf industry for his 25 years as the CEO of the National Golf Course Owners Association Canada (NGCOA Canada), a position he will continue.
“The CGSA board of directors and staff team are excited about Jeff’s leadership for the future benefit of the association itself and superintendents throughout Canada,” said CGSA president Jim Flett.
“His strategic approach to association management and such relevant experience are a great fit for the CGSA’s leadership needs. I would like to publicly welcome Jeff to the CGSA and really look forward to working together,” added Flett.
Calderwood added that synergies already exist between superintendents and the ownership of golf courses.
“I think my experience can then help develop the CGSA’s strategies to further benefit superintendents directly while adding value for their overall golf operations,” said Calderwood.
The CGSA and NGCOA Canada have also entered into a new partnership to share in delivering the Golfmax Purchasing Program, adding mutually beneficial value to both the CGSA membership and to ownership.
All CGSA members are now able to take advantage of Golfmax national account pricing on various turf department supplier agreements, as well as some additional personal benefits.
