STRI to roll out training for green keepers and course managers across the UK and Ireland

Sports Turf Research Institute (STRI) is to run a series of training courses throughout November and December for green keepers and course managers.

Eight venues across England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland will host four individual days of training on the latest products, techniques, technology and machinery used on golf courses and putting greens.

"Science-based sessions across 14 separate golf modules encompassing technical turf management, progressive turf management as well as pests, weeds and diseases will be included in each course run by agronomists," said the STRI.

Consultant Stuart Ormondroyd said: "Each of the 14 modules will suit individual needs. Whether they attend for all four days or just a few of the modules the information help them improve and sustain the quality of their turf."

Schedule of courses is: Best Western Gleddoch House Hotel & Golf Spa, West Scotland: 12-15 November; Moor Allerton Golf Club, North England: 12-15 November and Castleknock Hotel & Country Club, Ireland: 13-16 November.
