Benefits of Membership


Takes Their Membership
to the Next Level!

Three Options and Enhanced Benefits Create
Improved CGSA Membership Value

The Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) just rolled out three membership options. Effective immediately, new members can join by selecting one of the three Membership Options that best meets their own needs.

“We’re taking our membership to the next level”, explains CGSA Executive Director Jeff Calderwood. “By adding more benefits and then segmenting those services into three packages, we’re providing our members with more customized services. Not all superintendents operate on the same budgets or have the same priorities. So the CGSA has diversified our value proposition to appeal to those who are more budget conscious at the same time as offering two new options for those who prefer more benefits.

The CGSA has branded these three options as Essential, Premium and Ultimate Memberships, with $300 difference in dues amount between each category. CGSA President Kendall Costain, MS notes that, “All three remain very affordable, with dues priced well below what golf pros, club managers, course owners, and the amateur golf associations require. And more importantly, we have substantially increased the member benefits across all three options. On behalf of our Board of Directors, I encourage every superintendent and all related stakeholders to take advantage of these new opportunities. By using your benefits, the cost of your membership is covered!  For example, one purchase using Golfmax can recover your membership dues”.

Those who choose the Essential Membership will enjoy the “Best Price” and receive access to a $2,400 suite of benefits. The Premium Membership will upgrade their entitlement to $4,500 and provide the “Best Value”.  And the Ultimate Membership, positioned as “Best Overall”, further enhances the value proposition to $6,000 including substantial discounts applied to CGSA events and employment referral services, as well as several unique value-added services and immediate access to any new CGSA benefits in development.
