The Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) and Rain Bird are pleased to announce the renewed three-year partnership agreement which includes exclusive sponsorship of the CGSA/Rain Bird Environmental Achievement Award. As a Silver sponsor, Rain Bird will also be a sponsor at The Canadian Golf Course Management Conference (CGCMC).
“We are excited to have Rain Bird continue their support of the CGSA with the renewal of this multi-year agreement,” said CGSA President, Darren Kalyniuk. “One of the cornerstones of golf course management is environmental stewardship and the exclusive sponsorship of this award compliments that commitment to our environment and the work superintendents do.”  
“Rain Bird is very pleased to renew their sponsorship for the CGSA/Rain Bird Environmental Achievement Award,” said Serge Gauthier, Golf Senior Area Manager for Canada. “Rain Bird is committed to The Intelligent Use of Water™ and this Environmental Award aligns well with our corporate beliefs and our commitment to save this precious resource.”
The CGSA/Rain Bird Environmental Achievement Award recognizes the achievements of golf course superintendents and their staff in promoting and preserving the special relationship between golf course properties and environmentally sustainable business practices. It helps to promote the stewardship role that superintendents play with respect to the environment and it highlights the projects, management practices and innovations that golf course managers are implementing on an ongoing basis.
The Award winner will receive an All-Access registration for themselves and two team members to The Canadian 2021 Golf Course Management Conference, a prize package and a plaque. The winner will be acknowledged during the awards ceremony. Applications are now open for the CGSA/Rain Bird Environmental Achievement Award. Click here for award details and application form.
