The British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association and ICL have announced the five successful recipients of the fourth ICL Continue to Learn Scholarship.

The successful BIGGA members are: William Curran, Beaverbrook Golf Club; Phil Worth, Macclesfield Golf Club; Thomas Tomlinson, Boldon Golf Club; Joe Lamb, West Herts Golf Club; and Melissa Winkworth, Goring and Streatley Golf Club.

The ICL Continue to Learn 2020 Scholars will receive three nights’ hotel accommodation and 15 hours of training and personal development at the world-leading education programme, supported by BIGGA Partner and specialty fertiliser company ICL.

With the Continue to Learn education programme due to be announced on October 7, BIGGA’s Head of Member Development Sami Strutt said: “We received 75 completed applications for this fantastic member opportunity. Whittling them down to just five has been a real challenge. The recipients of the scholarship, sponsored by ICL, will benefit from both attending great education and networking with their peers. We look forward to welcoming the ICL Continue to Learn Scholars to BTME 2020 for what promises to be another great event.”

Ed Carter, ICL’s UK Sales and Development Manager, said: “ICL is delighted to sponsor such a worthwhile scheme. The caliber of recipients each year has been outstanding and we’re delighted that these five ambitious BIGGA members will join our growing community of ICL Scholars. Each of the applicants were of a similarly high standard and the selection decision was extremely difficult, as always.”

Continue to Learn at BTME 2020 will take place at Harrogate Convention Centre from Sunday 19 – Wednesday 22 January 2020.  The extensive education programme will run alongside the BTME, the largest indoor exhibition in Europe for the Sports Turf industry.
