Golf has officially been approved for play in all Canadian provinces except Nova Scotia. Ontario gave its blessing to begin on May 16, and Quebec has allowed golf to start on May 20. Play in Saskatchewan was given the OK much earlier, but it doesn’t take effect until May 15. In this podcast, we’ll hear from Darren Kalyniuk, president of the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association and superintendent at Winnipeg’s St. Boniface Golf Club, about safety protocols developed not only for golf course maintenance staff but for golfers as well. The CGSA had a helping hand in developing much of these measures.
