"On September 13, the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA), in conjunction with other global superintendent groups, is recognizing those who help keep golf courses enjoyable and sustainable with an international “Thank a Golf Course Superintendent Day”, encouraging all those who love golf to thank their course’s superintendent. Golfers and others are encouraged to join in the conversation on social media using the hashtag #ThankASuper"
Here at Willow Valley, we constantly receive compliments about the conditions of the grounds. The main reason why our course looks great all the time, is our superintendent Kevin and his team! They work tirelessly to keep Willow Valley looking its best for all our guests. We're taking the time this Tuesday to celebrate the hard work our Superintendent does, and the work all the golf superintendents do across the country. Golf is an amazing game, that allows us to find enjoyment no matter where we are, and we have Superintendents to thank for all of the awesome tracks we enjoy.
Join us at Willow Valley this Tuesday September 13th, 2022 to celebrate our dedicated Superintendent Kevin! Him and his team will be hard at work, but if you see them on the course throughout the day, be sure to give them a friendly wave and thank them for the work they do. We're also celebrating by giving away 10 FREE passes for Willow Valley in closest-to-the-pin contests on EVERY ONE of our Par 3's! Be sure to take a good look at all the Par 3 greens to see what you have to beat. Head to our Player's Guide to see details about every hole, and make some plans for attacking the Par 3's! Book your tee-time today so you don't miss out on the festivities!
In another effort to recognize the hard work of Kevin and his greens crew, we're posting a small gallery of some of the amazing work they do here at Willow. Browse the photos below to see the fruit's of Kevin's labour, and leave a comment thanking him!
Kevin and the greens crew do an excellent job of keeping all the decorative flowers and shrubs looking great around the course!
Our pristine bentgrass driving range is something not many courses can offer. Thanks to Kevin and his team, we have one of the nicest driving ranges in the area!
Our greens and fairways have always been immaculate, but Kevin and his team take them to another level!
As a side note, it's not well known, but Willow Valley is the product of our passion for golf melding with our passion for turfgrass. The owners are sod farmers, have been since 1975, and that's a driving force behind the excellent turf at Willow! Right next door to the golf course is our Hamilton location of Greenhorizons Sod Farms. It's convenient for us at Willow since Greenhorizons is proud to be one of Ontario's only producers of turfgrass for golf courses. Whether you need bentgrass for greens and fairways, or premium Kentucky Bluegrass for your rough, we're your destination for all things Golf Turf in Ontario. If you're a superintendent or an affiliate at an Ontario Golf Course, check out our Golf Turf page on our website for more details!
