BIGGA reveals its seminar programme for IoG Saltex exhibition.

Subjects from social media and turf management to the effect of Wimbledon tennis on golf are among those to be discussed at this year's Saltex exhibition.

The British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA) has revealed its seminar line-up on 3 September at the exhibition held at Royal Windsor Racecourse.

Course manager at Wimbledon Park Golf Club David Langheim MG will outline how his club is affected each year by ‘Wimbledon fortnight’ and how it is repaired.

Daniel Lightfoot MG, course manager at Bearwood Lakes Golf Club and Matthew Nutter, course manager at East Berkshire Golf Club, will then take to the stage to talk about social media. Attendees at their ‘#socialsaltex’ seminar will discover whether social media can make the grass grow better.

The BIGGA programme completes with the presentation ‘Integrated Turf Management in Action’ by Everris’ Henry Bechelet, technical sales manager - turf and amenity who proposes to show the real benefits of taking an integrated approach to turf management.

He said: "If we combine treatments properly and build fully integrated maintenance programmes, then we can produce surfaces that perform better and with lower inputs."

Bechelet will use the latest research and field trial data to show the benefits of thinking holistically and using objective measurement tools to guide decision-making.

The seminars are free to attend and one BIGGA CPD credits is available for each seminar attended.

There is also a full seminar programme on the other two days of SALTEX, which runs 2 – 4 September.
