Member of Parliament and co-chairperson of All Party Parliamentary Group for Golf to join BIGGA CEO for discussion on state of the golf industry
The British & International Golf Greenkeepers Association will welcome the co-chairperson of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Golf, Craig Tracey MP, to its Continue to Learn Extra webinar series on Tuesday 21 July.
All Party Groups comprise members of all political parties and support specific interests. In the case of the Golf Group, members work to a deliberately broad but simple remit, “to support the game of golf”.
Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, the MP for North Warwickshire has worked closely with BIGGA and the governing bodies of golf. Taking advice from the industry, he was actively involved in advising the Government on behalf of the golf industry, helping produce guidance upon the reopening of golf.
BIGGA has been heavily involved in that discussion, offering help and advice at every stage on behalf of the greenkeeping industry. BIGGA CEO Jim Croxton will speak to Craig about everything that took place during the coronavirus crisis and will discuss the challenges ahead for the golf industry.
BIGGA’s Continue to Learn Extra webinar series was introduced at the onset of the COVID-19 crisis. Webinars are hosted on the BIGGA website and available to watch live by anyone interested in the golf industry.
BIGGA’s Jim Croxton said: “The coronavirus crisis has been an incredibly trying time for everyone associated with the sports and amenity industries. By presenting a unified front across the entire golf industry and supported by Craig Tracey MP and his team, we were able to highlight the positive benefits of playing golf and show how the sport could be played and golf courses maintained in a safe manner. This allowed the industry to reopen ahead of many others and I am looking forward to recapping with Craig everything that took place and discussing his vision for the future of the sport.
“Continue to Learn Extra’s live webinars are open to anyone with an interest in the topics discussed and I hope that you’re able to join us for what stands to be a fascinating conversation.”
