GBGSA President's Letter

Dear GBGSA member,

I want to thank all of our members and suppliers for your continued support. I also want to thank all of the Superintendents, General Managers, Golf Professionals and Clubhouse staff that have hosted our GBGSA events over the years. There is a very specific reason why our association thrives and is able to move forward year after year and that is due to the continued support from everyone. The GBGSA thanks you for this. Lastly, I want to hand out a big thank you to our Board of Directors as well. There is a lot of work happening behind the scenes to make these events happen.

Our sponsorship initiatives will continue through 2018:

  • GBGSA (Jay Lavis Memorial) Scholarship
  • BAGS Tour
  • Guelph Turfgrass Institute
  • Norman McCollum Bursary

If anyone is not aware what these initiatives are, you can click on the GBGSA initiatives tab.

The funding that we use to support these initiatives comes from the membership dues each year, which allows support for turfgrass students as well as junior golf within our region.

The GBGSA has made a decision on our three events for the year. All the details will be posted on the GBGSA website over the next couple of weeks.

I am very proud and excited to take on the new role as the president for the GBGSA. If anyone has any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me either through our gbgsagolf@gmail.com email account or at my personal psnider.bcgc@golfnorth.ca email account.

I hope everyone has a good start the season.


Paul Snider
GBGSA President
