Muskoka Lakes Golf and Country Club (Port Carling, Ont.) will host the 2014 Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) Fall Field Day.

“The Fall Field Day is one of our association’s most significant annual events,” said John Mills, CGSA president and superintendent at the Northumberland Links Golf Club in Pugwash, N.S. “This event brings together many of our members from across the country to contest for our national championship. It is a time for friendly competition, networking on important association issues, and professional development—all conducted in a setting that promotes fair play and camaraderie.”

According to the CGSA website, the national championship course plays host to 144 golf course management professionals each year while they compete for the Tom Johnston Trophy—named after the 1969 CGSA president. The 2014 event will be overseen by Jim Flett, AGS, Muskoka Lakes superintendent.

“It will be a great honour for me personally and for our club to host the CGSA Fall Field Day here in Muskoka,” said Flett. “We have a classic 92-year-old, Stanley Thompson-designed golf course set against a classic Muskoka background, providing not only an interesting golf challenge, but one of the most scenic fall settings found anywhere in Canada. I look forward to preparing the golf course and to welcoming superintendents from across the country and internationally.”

The field day will take place on Tuesday, September 23 with a medal/stroke play 18-hole event that uses flights and overall championship scoring. A seminar and nine-hole event is also planned for Monday, September 22.
