Wisconsin, United States: Foley United has embarked upon a new relationship with the British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA) as an Education Supporter.
In becoming the latest BIGGA Education Supporter, Foley United will support members of the association and the wider greenkeeping industry and provide a number of educational opportunities through the BIGGA framework.
These opportunities will include seminars and workshops to outline grinding best practice, while giving a full explanation of the different options available when it comes to all aspects of grinding.
This information will also be made available through articles and e-newsletters to provide easy access to all BIGGA members, with a particular focus on ensuring educational material is available on request, whenever required.
Foley will work closely with BIGGA’s regional team to address any concerns or questions on grinding and to bring knowledge of new products and techniques directly to greenkeepers, making it easier to offer tailored solutions.

Working closely with the biggest names in the industry allows our members to benefit from their expertise and knowledge, which can only help to raise standards across the industry.
“The team at Foley United is renowned for its innovation in technology and design and its constant desire to move forwards. This is an ethos shared by BIGGA members everywhere and so I’m looking forward to working closer with the Foley United team going forwards and creating further education opportunities across the association.”
