‘Responsible Golf Course Management’

February 22nd, 2017

This week I am attending the annual conference of FEGGA (Federation of European Golf Greenkeepers’ Associations) at Hotel Quinta da Marinha near Lisbon. Much of the day has been spent discussing ‘Responsible Golf Course Management’, the statement that FEGGA has made on behalf of the European Golf Greenkeeping Industry.

To read this document you do not have to be in Portugal – it is all on-line – but when given the opportunity I thought that it would be rude not to come.
