Bernhard & Co sends more delegates to US Golf Industry Show

Ten greenkeepers and course managers have earned places as British & International Golf Greenkeepers' Association (BIGGA) delegates at the Golf Industry Show to be held in Las Vegas later this month, bringing the number sponsored by Bernhard & Co to 100.

The award was set up in 2001 by grinder supplier Bernhard & Co of Rugby. It was the idea of chairman Stephen Bernhard, who wanted to put something back into the industry and forge stronger links between BIGGA and the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America.

"I've always been keen to invest in British greenkeepers' career development and to foster exchange," said Bernhard.

This years recipients are Worlebury Golf Club head greenkeeper Jamie Acton, Fairmont St Andrews golf course superintendent Neil Ballingall, Ladybank Golf Club first assistant David Gray, John O'Gaunt Golf Club workshop manager Stuart Hall, North Foreland Golf Club course manager Dan McGrath, Rockliffe Hall Golf & Country Club head greenkeeper Pete Newton, Richmond Golf Club deputy course manager Dan Norsworthy, Ham Manor Golf Club course manager Alan Pierce, Yelverton Golf Club course manager George Pitts and Lymm Golf Club course manager Stuart Yarwood.
