Greenkeeping in action

2.56pm 18th December 2018 -

BTME 2019 will introduce hands-on greenkeeping to the Harrogate Convention Centre’s exhibition halls this January.

Golf Construction Live will see head greenkeepers Stuart Imeson, of Dunstanburgh Castle, and Jack Hetherington, of Alnwick Castle, build a 3m revetted bunker and a 2m green to USGA specifications.

Construction will begin at 9am on Tuesday and will be supported by exhibitors at BTME, providing an insight into the process of constructing revetted bunkers – commonly seen on traditional links golf courses – and USGA-specification greens.

Golf Construction Live is a brand new offering from BIGGA, the organisers of BTME, and is an example of the exciting new opportunities to get involved that will be taking place throughout the exhibition.
