"Stanley Thompson is Canada's most celebrated golf course architect. But his first, formal training came in plant sciences and the upkeep of golf courses at the University of Guelph. Throughout his entire career, Thompson's design company also offered agronomic consulting services. He recognized the important role golf course superintendents play relative to the game's ultimate success and trained many green keepers during the development and continued maintenance of his golf course designs across Canada.
