Golf Surveys Limited has been involved in some of the most prestigious developments in golf including Kingsbarns Links and The Grove, Hertfordshire. Elmwood College offers the most comprehensive package of golf education in the world.

The new partnership is based at 12 The Links, St Andrews overlooking the 18th green of the Old Course.

“This is a particularly exciting time for the development of Elmwood College,” said Carol Borthwick, Director of International and Golf at Elmwood College. “We have been working to support the development of golf education and training around the world including China and to improve the standards of green keeping and golf management towards excellence. We are delighted to be working with Golf Surveys Ltd on their projects around the globe. Our office in St Andrews is the ideal focal point to promote golf education and our aim in working together is to share and develop best practice.”

Kyle Phillips, the designer of Kingsbarns Golf Links will host a round of golf at this world class course for the delegates.

The partnership is also working on the St Andrews World Golf Forum event in October where some of the most knowledgeable people in golf will come together to discuss the future of golf, the spirit of the game and to share their expertise.

The information gathered from this new Forum will create a unique knowledge centre that will be working for the greater good of golf which will be made freely available to all 32,000 golf clubs worldwide. Every spring the Forum will gather at unique locations around the world to receive feedback on how their ideas have been put into practice. The first spring gathering is planned for China 2012.
