GHSC Annual Trade Show
Canadian Golf Hall of Fame, Glen Abbey, Oakville
We have been closely monitoring the situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In conjunction with Golf Canada and in response to this very fluid situation, we have made the decision to CANCEL the Trade Show, Sale and Silent Auction that was scheduled for April 5th at the Museum at Glen Abbey. We will work with Golf Canada to identify another date for this event once things have returned to a more 'normal' situation and we will communicate those details to you all as soon they are available.
We are committed to the health and well-being of both our Members and the Public who would attend and strongly believe that this decision fits that ethic and is in everyone's best interests at this time.
We ask that you take care of yourselves, your families, and friends during these trying times.
