The Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and Golf Canada is inducting the late Gord Witteveen (1934-2010), into the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame.
A career superintendent with more than a half-century of service at golf clubs across Ontario and Quebec, Witteveen was the founding director of the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) and a renowned golf writer, author, featured speaker and educator.
Witteveen is being inducted in the builder category, becoming the 70th member of the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame.
“The Canadian Golf Hall of Fame seeks to recognize excellence as golfers, contributors and supporters of the game,” said Ian Clarke, chairman of the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame selection committee. “Gord Witteveen made tremendous contributions as a superintendent, author and educator and it is only fitting that as such, he is recognized for his accomplishments.”
