The Mainprize Golf Club located in the Mainprize Regional Park, Saskatchewan has faced its fair share of challenges over the last few years. In 2011 major flooding spread across a lot of southeastern Saskatchewan and the Mainprize Golf Club became one of the victims of the Souris River/Rafferty water system. Mainprize lost 4 golf holes, a part of our campground, boat launch and beach. We have since recovered and have re-established the four flooded holes plus 3 abandoned practices holes that were used during the re-establishment of the flooded holes.

So after all of the flooding and other issues that came along with the flood the topic that I am writing about may almost seem insignificant but that is not really the case. Take-all Patch has definitely presented its own unique challenges to myself as the Golf Course Superintendent in Mainprize. One of the most difficult things about it is has been dealing with the disease while attempting to re-establish my flooded golf course and attempting to bring back the customers that were lost from the flood years.

This yearly award is presented in honour of the late Dr. Drew Smith.  Dr. Smith was engaged in teaching, extension, and a research scientist on the Botany  of Grasses, usually in relation to plant disease.  He was with the Agriculture Canada Research Station in Saskatoon.

The award recognizes the recipients’ dedication and contribution to the turfgrass industry in the Province of Saskatchewan.
