Spontaneous and Popular European Co-Operation Will Continue

March 29th, 2017

In his inaugural speech to European Golf Course Architects at the EIGCA meeting last week, the Institute’s new President, Ross McMurray, addressing the current political uncertainty across Europe, said that after 17 years as a pan-European representative body, EIGCA remains committed to acting in the best interests of Members and Partners, wherever they are based, for the good of the profession and wider industry.

In the business of golf, of course, it’s not only golf course architects who have organised themselves into pan-continental groups. Course owners, club managers, playing professionals, teaching professionals, greenkeepers and national associations have all seen the benefits of voluntary co-operation on a European basis.

They have formed these alliances, however, based on the continent’s geography rather than its politics and today I see absolutely no reason why this spontaneous and popular co-operation should not continue.
