Federation of European Golf Greenkeeper Associations (FEGGA) recently brought together many of the new emerging golfing nations in a commitment in assisting with their future development. Some eighty people took advantage of this opportunity which offered a unique education programme over two days.
The conference held in Bled, Slovenia took the delegates on a journey that started with new planning guidelines for golf courses through to design and onto building the golf course. It also included, grow-in, sustainable management through to education of greenkeepers.
The conference was sponsored by Toro, Ransomes-Jacobsen, John Deere, Campey Turf Care and Syngenta. The event was also supported by the EGA and R & A and typically shows the support and commitment FEGGA is receiving. Eastern Europe is a growing market and is working hard at creating a sustainable industry. FEGGA’s role is to assist these countries through its European expertise in turf management and association support and guidance.
