St Andrews Links became the first venue in Scotland to host an innovative First Green field trip aimed at inspiring the next generation of greenkeepers by showcasing the range of skills required in greenkeeping across science, technology, engineering and maths.

A former IT recruiter, a hotel doorman, a county cricketer and a heavy metal guitarist are just some of the finalists of the most prestigious awards event in the student greenkeeping calendar.

Brent Downs, the director of agronomy at Otter Creek Golf Course in Indiana, has become the 90th Master Greenkeeper since the certification’s inception by BIGGA in 1990.
