CGSA and the Foley Company Announce Continued Sponsorship of the CGSA/Foley Company Equipment Technician of the Year Award

Mississauga, ON (October 21, 2020) - The Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) and the Foley Company are pleased to announce the continued exclusive sponsorship of the CGSA/Foley Company Equipment Technician of the Year Award.

“CGSA is proud to partner with the Foley Company to offer the CGSA/Foley Company Equipment Technician of the Year Award,” said Darren Kalyniuk, CGSA President. “This support allows the golf industry to recognize the outstanding contributions equipment technicians make to the operations of the golf course.”

“Foley Company is proud to once again acknowledge the hard work, tough hours, and all-around expertise that today’s equipment managers embrace to keep a course running,” said Greg Turner, Global Sales Director of the Foley Company.  “They are truly the right-hand man of the golf course superintendents and their value within the overall golf complex is why we’re so pleased to invest in this award.  Their role is crucial to any successful superintendent, as they are indeed one of the key cogs in helping meet today’s golfer expectations.”

This award recognizes the specific achievements of a golf course equipment technician whose performance and contributions to the success of the facility go beyond those that would normally be expected. It is presented to an individual who has contributed to his or her golf facility in a significant way and who has demonstrated professionalism, innovation and a team approach in their work.

The award winner will receive registration to The Canadian 2021 Golf Course Management Conference. In addition, the recipient will receive a prize package from Foley Company valued at $1,000 and the Equipment Technician of the Year plaque.
