Ontario’s We Are Golf Partners Continue to Work On Your Behalf


Ontario’s We Are Golf partners (PGA of Ontario, Golf Ontario, NGCOA, OGSA, and CSCM) continue to work very closely together to communicate a clear plan for golf’s return within a safe and healthy environment. Click here to view our letter to members.



The PGA of Ontario is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Watershed HR Solutions! Watershed offers a fully integrated Human Resources solution for small to mid-sized businesses, conducive to our member facilities. 


Founded by Steve Mendelssohn, a labour and employment lawyer (and avid golfer!), Watershed offers workable templates, forms, how-to advice along with a Human Resources Information System available to all members. 


As businesses reopen following the COVID–19 crisis, remote support will become the new normal. Watershed HR Solutions has created a one-stop offering of comprehensive HR support at a fraction of the cost of having any dedicated HR support within your business.


Join us on Friday morning and discover how the PGA of Ontario's newest partner can serve you! Click here for more information & full announcement.


Demonstrations of this HR platform will be held on:

Friday, May 8th at 10:00am - Register Here

Tuesday May 12th at 2:00pm - Register Here

Roll Ready™ - A safer and more

hygienic way to clean the golf ball


As golfers return to golf courses during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, many golf courses are actively revising policies to encourage physical distancing, reduce touch points and limit the spread of infection. 


One of the areas of concern relates to how golfers clean their golf balls during rounds.

Roll Ready™ is a simple to use, single handed golf ball cleaner that attaches to the player’s belt or waistband. While the player rolls their ball inside the device, the textured microfiber cloth cleans the ball while the player lines up his/her putt.


Check out the promo video here.
