1.21pm 1st September 2021 - Exhibitions & Conferences

Bernhard and Company, industry-leader in turf sharpening equipment and management solutions, has announced that the application process is open for the exclusive BIGGA Delegation trip to the 2022 Golf Industry Show

Bernhard and Company’s BIGGA Delegation is one of the most respected and sought-after personal development opportunities for greenkeepers and turf professionals in the UK. The week-long educational trip to the Golf Industry Show will feature experiences designed to elevate attendees’ careers, and will also include site visits to leading golf facilities in the region.

2022 will mark the 20th year that Bernhard and Company has worked with BIGGA to deliver the delegation. As such, successful applicants will form part of ‘The 200 Club’ – an exclusive group of professionals that will form part of the 20th iteration of the delegation.

The chosen BIGGA members will represent the UK’s greenkeeping industry, as they develop their network with likeminded professionals from around the globe. They will also take a deep dive into the educational offering at the largest turf management exhibition in the world, this time taking place at The Harbor Drive Convention Center in San Diego.

Tom Smith, now a senior greenkeeper at Wylihof Golf Club in Switzerland, and member of the San Antonio 2019 delegation party, commented: “The education is second to none. The week was packed full of learning experiences relating to different aspects of greenkeeping, as well as site visits to top golf courses in the area. I really can’t speak highly enough of the trip and would encourage everybody to put themselves forward.”

Steven Nixon, Director for Bernhard and Company, added: “We are looking forward to resuming the BIGGA Delegation this year after missing out in 2021. The company is excited to be working with BIGGA once again to give something back to the industry we love. I’m certain it will be a career-defining week for our #200Club attendees.”

The GCSAA educational conference takes place from February 5-10 in San Diego, and the deadline for applications isSeptember 17, 2021 at 5pm BST.
