Jimmy Kidd, Golf Courses and Estate Director at The Gleneagles Hotel has announced that the second Gleneagles Turf Care Conference, sponsored by Textron Golf, Turf & Specialty Products, will take place from Sunday 24th until Tuesday 26th November 2002

This year’s conference has the support of FEGGA, The Federation of Golf Greenkeepers Association and will focus on a range of operational issues surrounding the management of a successful golf course. It is aimed at attracting an audience that includes Directors of Golf, Course Managers, Superintendents, Professionals, General Managers and Secretaries/Treasurers.

Speaking recently at the world-renowned resort he said, “The inaugural conference last November surpassed all my expectations. Our aim was to enlighten, entertain and educate and, without fear of contradiction, I can say that we achieved this…and more. We had a diverse range of delegates from all parts of globe and it provided the ideal forum for them to expand their knowledge and understanding of the golf industry. The speakers, many of whom had travelled from across the world, were first rate and question time at the end of each session provided the opportunity for a lively debate on the various issues raised.”

Glynn Patrick, Sales Director at Textron added, “Through Jimmy’s vision and the efforts of everyone involved, last year’s inaugural conference was an tremendous success and achieved its goal of providing a forum where best practice could be explored to the benefit of all the participants. I’m sure that this year’s event will be equally successful and we are delighted to continue our role as principal sponsors.”
