7.20am 7th August 2007 - People

The fifteen students of the European Institute of Golf Course Architects are presently moving to their final seminar in St. Andrews of their two year Professional Diploma Course before their graduation into the Institute.

They will complete their studies in September and take back to their twelve countries a unique qualification in their entry into the profession of golf course design.

They will be succeeded by seventeen new students from as far afield as USA, Argentina, South Africa, Canada – in total thirteen nations – who will begin their Diploma Course in Surrey in September. Thereafter, in their two year programme, they will spend time in Germany, Ireland, Portugal and Scotland as well as with EIGCA member practices in their professional education.

EIGCA President, Ken Moodie adds, “I am delighted that we have successfully established our new Diploma Course as the world’s only programme of its type and that the calibre of students is so high. As a qualifying organisation EIGCA has a core philosophy of educating and training not only its membership on a continuing basis, but those who wish to join us. They are the lifeblood for the future of our growing profession.”
