Ecological habitat management offers an exciting opportunity to enhance the attraction of golf courses to both players and natural biodiversity. This summer greenkeepers and course managers will have the great chance for free training and advice on how to get the best results on their course, with a nationwide series of practical Operation Pollinator workshops.

Organised by Syngenta, the training will be provided by industry-leading STRI ecologist, Bob Taylor.

The seven workshops across England and Scotland all take place on golf courses, enabling the valuable advice to be backed up with practical demonstrations and examples of how to successfully establish and manage wildflower habitats for the benefit of bumblebees and other pollinating insects.

One has already happened and another is fully booked but five more opportunities remain. Attendees to the workshops can also receive 3 BIGGA CPD Credits.
