4.05pm 16th January 2019 - Management Topics

Promote Training, the only dedicated eLearning training provider to the UK golf industry, have launched “Golf Course Management – Part 2” and are offering GBN readers an exclusive enrolment discount. Following on from the hugely popular “Golf Course Management – part 1”, this new course from Promote Training explores more course maintenance practices and knowledge that anyone working in a golf capacity at a golf club would do well to learn.

Laurence Pithie

The course was written by Laurence Pithie, the first greenkeeper to attain BIGGA’s Master Greenkeeper Certificate in 1991. Laurence was also a recipient of both Greenkeeper and Groundsman of the Year in 1984 and 1988 respectively. He has served the industry for over 40 years, working at numerous courses across the UK along with 16 years’ service as Maintenance Director for American Golf (UK).

This second “Certificate” level course from Laurence takes a closer look at the cultural practices of sound golf course management, from aeration through to over-seeding.

It also looks at the difficulties in managing fine sports turf areas in relation to disorders, pests and diseases, each presenting a significant risk to playing surfaces and the customer’s experience of the course.

Commenting on the new course, Matthew Orwin, Co-Founder of Promote Training, says, “Laurence’s first course has been a huge success. Clearly there is an appetite for training on matters relating to golf course maintenance for all golf-related staff – not just greenkeepers.

“We’re exciting about the potential of this second course from Laurence, which explores the subject further. We’re sure delegates will find it hugely useful in their current roles and an enjoyable learning experience.”

GBN readers can enrol on the new course with an exclusive 15% discount up to 31st January 2019by visiting and using the coupon code “GBN15” at checkout.
