By designing facilities which maximise the use of available land and appeal to all golfers, European Institute of Golf Course Architects members have an important role in the popularity and playability of the sport. BTME is an opportunity for EIGCA to reach the wider golf community and this year has a three-fold presence:
Two EIGCA members – Caspar Grauballe MEIGCA and Paul Kimber MEIGCA – are giving an all-day class on Sunday 20th March, called “Renovating your golf course” in Queens Suite 7 from 9:30am-5:30pm. They will focus on how to use design to improve a golf course, including how design helps broaden the appeal of the course to a wider audience and enhances income streams.
Throughout Tuesday to Thursday, EIGCA has a stand in the Blue Zone (Stand 174). The stand will be staffed by members throughout the three days who are ready to answer queries on golf course design and the benefits of employing a qualified architect.
EIGCA’s traditional Partners Reception is on the Wednesday evening and is an opportunity for EIGCA Partners and Members to mix and mingle in an informal environment.
The EIGCA team is looking forward to meeting friends old and new and welcomes everyone to Stand 174 (Blue Zone) to find out more about golf course design and the role of a qualified architect in the future prosperity of a course.
The European Institute of Golf Course Architects is the professional body for golf course architecture in Europe, membership stands at 101, based in 25 countries across three continents. Through their skill, experience and training, EIGCA Members demonstrate that they design and supervise the construction of golf courses to the highest standards.
