Thanks to our volunteers
On Sept 10th, Golf Saskatchewan held our Volunteer, Sponsor, and Media Appreciation Golf Day at the

The event thanks our volunteers, business and media partners who assist us in servicing the game of golf in Saskatchewan.  We will see you all again on the links in 2017.

Long Term and Exemplary Volunteer Service Awards
