Etobicoke, Ontario: Jeff Calderwood has been appointed as Executive Director of the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA).
Calderwood is well known in the golf industry for his 25 years in the post of Chief Executive Officer of the National Golf Course Owners Association Canada (NGCOA Canada), which he will continue.
Jim Flett, CGSA President, said: “The CGSA Board of Directors and staff team are excited about Jeff’s leadership for the future benefit of the association itself and superintendents throughout Canada.
“His strategic approach to association management and such relevant experience are a great fit for the CGSA’s leadership needs. I would like to publicly welcome Jeff to the CGSA and really look forward to working together.”
Calderwood said: “There are so many synergies between the best interests of superintendents and the ownership of golf courses. So the two associations are very well aligned already.
“I think my experience can help develop the CGSA’s strategies to further benefit superintendents directly while adding value for their overall golf operations.”
