The R&A Greenkeeping Scholarship Programme has been growing since 2004, assisting students studying higher education qualifications in greenkeeping/sports turf management courses at SRUC Elmwood in Scotland, Myerscough College in England and CAFRE in Northern Ireland. Most of our Scholars now study through distance learning whilst working as full-time greenkeepers/course managers.
Adrian Schwarz represented Switzerland at the FEGGA meeting in Ireland. A very interesting and fruitful conference, as he told us, with great meetings but also a lot of interesting information which he could take home with him.
Swiss Golf has been presenting the Swiss Golf Award for the past 2 years. Votes were possible until the end of November 2019 and the announcement of the rank was made at the Golf Fair in Zurich at the end of January 2020.
