The Bernhard and Company Bigga delegation is one of the most respected educational opportunities for greenkeepers and turf professionals in the UK, and delivers experiences designed to elevate attendees’ careers. The delegation is a week-long educational trip to the coveted GIS show, which also includes site visits to leading golf facilities in the region – the delegation is renowned for building business and social relationships that last a lifetime.

Bernhard and Company is pleased to announce that it has now kickstarted the recruitment process to find 10 openminded and enthusiastic greenkeepers that would love to take full advantage of what the trip has to offer. 2022 will mark the 20th year that Bernhard and Company have worked in synergy with BIGGA to deliver this delegation. As such, successful applicants will form part of ‘The 200 Club’ - an exclusive group of professionals that have benefited from the delegation.

The chosen BIGGA members will represent the United Kingdom’s greenkeeping industry, as they develop their network with likeminded professionals from around the globe. They will also take a deep dive into the educational offering at the largest turf management exhibition in the world, this year taking place at The Harbor Drive Convention Center, in San Diego.

Tom Smith, a senior greenkeeper at Wylihof Golf Club in Switzerland, and member of the San Antonio 2018 delegation party, commented: “The education is second to none. It is eight hours a day of intense, mind blowing material. The week was packed full of learning experiences relating to different aspects of greenkeeping, as well as site visits to top golf courses in the area. I really can’t speak highly enough of the trip and would encourage everybody to put themselves forward.”

Steven Nixon, Director for Bernhard and Company added: “We are looking forward to resuming the BIGGA delegation this year after missing out in 2020. The company is excited to be working with BIGGA once again to provide education, support, and opportunities. It is our way of putting something back into the industry we love.”

The GCSAA education conference takes place from the 5th – 10th February 2022, in San Diego, and the deadline for applications is Friday 10th September 2021.
