The European Institute of Golf Course Architects (EIGCA) will celebrate the fifth anniversary of the coming together of the former British, French and European Societies by holding its Annual Meeting and Conference at the Home of Golf between 13th and 17th April 2005.
The venue will be The Old Course Hotel and the five day programme will feature golf on the Old and New Courses, Kingsbarns, the Eden, the Jubilee, St. Andrews Bay, Crail and the Dukes together with a one day Conference to be held on Friday 15th. The delegates, members, graduates and students of the Institute will hear contributions from invited architects from USA, Japan and Australia as well as a workshop relating to golf course design and the environment led by The R&A and by two of the world’s most eminent consultant ecologists.
EIGCA consider environmentally friendly and sensitive design to be the cornerstone of their professional work.
The event at St. Andrews is open to all interested in golf course architecture and it is hoped that delegates from Federations, Allied Associations – golfing and greenkeeping alike – will attend. The delegate rate of £339 (inc VAT) per person includes golf on the New Course.
