EIGCA President's Dinner reception

The European Institute of Golf Course Architects has announced a new partnership category for golf course consultants with the aim of increasing interaction between the EIGCA and other professions in the golf industry. The scheme will be open to all consultants who are working in a solely fee based, professional practice, associated with the golf course design business.

It is hoped that this new partnership category will appeal to consultants involved in associated businesses such as agronomy, irrigation, drainage, planning, landscape and even photography and architecture.

Consultant Partners to the EIGCA will be able to attend the annual conference and any CPD events, giving them unprecedented access to the membership and expanding the opportunities for meaningful professional development within the Institute.

Announcing the new scheme Julia Green, EIGCA Executive Officer, commented; “The EIGCA is always looking at ways we can do more for both our membership and the industry in general. We felt that the new Consultant Partnership programme would help to expand possibilities for meaningful professional development within the EIGCA and its partners.

“Although not part of the membership, this programme gives Consultant Partners an exceptional opportunity to meet and converse with EIGCA golf course architects at our official functions and to promote their services both to the membership and, through our website, to a much wider audience.”

“Over the years we have strived hard to develop the profession and to promote European expertise in golf course architecture and construction. We have developed very good relationships with our Patrons and Industry Partners to help us in this aim and we hope to develop similar close relationships with our new Consultant Partners.”
