3.31pm 14th May 2021 - Corporate

Part of EIGCA’s role is to support, develop and educate the leading golf course architects based, or working, in Europe. One way this is achieved is to establish links with related organisations and today it is announced that The PGA has become the tenth EIGCA patron.

Christoph Städler, EIGCA President

“We are delighted to have the support of The PGA in furthering the golf course design profession,” says Christoph Städler, EIGCA President. “Both organisations have a common aim of professionalising the golf industry and the synergies between both organisations, such as members spread across the world and education programmes to develop future generations of professionals in the golf industry, provide exciting opportunities to work together in the future.

“We are excited for what lies ahead in terms of establishing ways in which this patronage will be mutually beneficial to the members of both organisations.”

Robert Maxfield, Chief Executive of The PGA

Chief Executive of The PGA, Robert Maxfield, adds: “PGA Members hold a huge variety of positions and play key roles in the design, development and ongoing management of golf courses and resorts across the world. We are delighted to have become a patron of the EIGCA and look forward to working with them and their members to help to continue that development of the game.”
