The Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) represents over 1,000 individuals at the national level across Canada. Its mandate is to support and promote the profession and to provide education and research resources for golf course managers.

As part of the ongoing effort to recognize the role of the superintendent at the golf facility, the CGSA sponsors the National Tournament Program for members that host these prestigious events. Our members are an essential part of the team that ensures that the golf course provides fair and consistent conditions for competition.
