#ThankaSuper Day - September 13, 2022


Today is International

"Thank a Golf Course Superintendent Day"” 


On behalf of myself and the rest of the MGSA Board of Directors I want to extend my gratitude for all that you do today on Thank a Superintendent Day. We know that your job is to lead an often-diverse group of individuals to provide an outstanding product day in and day out for your members and guests.


Thank you for what you do to help to make golf courses a vital part of so many communities across the province. Golf remains the sport with the highest participation in Canada and without you, the knowledgeable Superintendent it may not be able to hold that position.


Enjoy any accolades that come your way and know that you deserve them.




Dustin How, AGS

MGSA President
