BIGGA to hold education day at this year's SALTEX

The British and International Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA) is holding a day-long workshop at this year's Institute of Groundsmanship's SALTEX show.

The BIGGA Golf Education Day is free to attend for visitors to the exhibition and will feature a series of educational presentations, on 4 September.

SALTEX - Sports Amenity & Landscape Trade Exhibition – will be held at Windsor Racecourse between September 3 and 5.

Discussions will cover courses of all sizes and cover issues of drainage, bunkers, composts and disease management.

Speakers at the event will be Andy Wood course manager of Robin Hood Golf Club, Stuart Yarwood golf course manager of Lymm Golf Club and Dr Simon Watson Syngenta technical manager EAME turf and landscape.

Attendees will also hear the latest findings on disease management and practical advice on how to deliver smooth, disease-free greens right through the high risk autumn and winter periods.

BIGGA chief operations officer Jim Croxton, said: "BIGGA is delighted to once again have the opportunity to work with our friends the IOG and bring top class greenkeeper education to the SALTEX experience. 

"I hope many of our members take the opportunity to attend the seminar programme."

Attendees can gain 1 BIGGA CPD credit for each seminar they attend, in line with the organisation’s revamped CPD programme, launched at the beginning of this month.

Croxton added: "It is great that SALTEX provides the chance for our members to improve both their knowledge and their CPD profile.

"I hope many also take the chance to view the exhibition; the turf industry is a constant provider of innovation, and opportunities like SALTEX where new products and services can be seen at first hand are always a benefit."
