Golf Being Recognized as Unique Sporting Venue under Bill 44

NGCOA Canada is pleased to announce that the government’s official position statement regarding Bill 44 as it pertains to golf includes a designation for golf courses as a unique sporting venue. This means that Bill 44 will only pertain to your clubhouse, patio, or other permanent structures on your course. The NGCOA Canada is proud to have been a leader in working with the government to inform them about the unique nature of a golf operation and to achieve such a favourable outcome for golf course owners, operators and the clients that would have been affected.

“I am proud of the NGCOA Canada for following up with the government and getting golf recognized as a unique situation versus all other sports. This represents large sums of money that we will not have to invest in signage and allows us to keep our golf courses free from the visual contamination that the signage would have created” says Daniel Pilon, president of the NGCOA Canada, Quebec Chapter.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me should you have any questions. 

Kind Regards,

Mark Fraser, Regional Director
