The Today in Ontario campaign is about taking a step back and acknowledging the cumulative impact that golf and golf courses have on our environment, on wildlife, on people and our communities. Superintendents, and their teams are such an important component of the overwhelmingly positive impact the game of golf has, every day, on courses. As a sport, and recreational activity, golf stands alone in the positive ripple effect that the game has on people, environments and wildlife. This is the purpose of the campaign: to bring awareness to this aggregate positive impact.
Each day, millions of calories are burned on golf courses as friends and family members create lasting memories on wonderful golf courses that are maintained by Superintendents and their teams. Thousands and thousands of hectares of green spaces are protected, thousands of kilometres of habitats safeguarded, and hundreds of thousands of species thrive on golf courses that are manicured and maintained by Superintendents and their team’s.
Often the unsung heroes, this campaign helps us all recognize the passion, dedication and professionalism of Superintendents in Ontario.
