Bernhard and Company Unveils Show Delegates

London, England: The British & International Golf Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA) and Bernhard and Company have revealed the 10 association members who will represent the best of British greenkeeping at the 2023 Golf Course Superintendent Association of America’s Conference and Trade Show.

A BIGGA Premium Partner, each year Bernhard and Company invites 10 BIGGA members to attend the GCSAA Show. The 2023 Show will be held in Orlando in February.

The delegation is one of the most respected and revered educational opportunities for BIGGA members.

With experiences designed to elevate the careers of those in attendance, the delegation is a week-long educational trip. The week features site visits to leading golf courses in the region, as well as seminars, networking events and educational demonstrations at the show.

“We are once again excited to take the successful applicants on this incredible educational experience,” said Steven Nixon, Managing Director of Bernhard and Company, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“We are passionate about giving back to the industry we love so much and, in collaboration with BIGGA, we are able to offer 10 of its members this potentially career-defining opportunity,” he added.

Thanks to Bernhard and Company’s support, the BIGGA Delegation has helped define the careers of some of the most ambitious names within the greenkeeping industry.

Stefan Carter, Head Greenkeeper on the West Course at Wentworth Club, said: “I went to San Diego in 2019 and it was a fantastic opportunity. The delegation really helped me expand my horizons and increase my network. You’re with nine other greenkeepers who you can bounce ideas off and share situations.

“At the show you experience the education and you get to look around the show, where they have technology that is unheard of in the UK. You pick up tips and techniques that you bring back home to push the boundaries of what you can achieve.”

The members selected for the 2023 BIGGA delegation are:

Alex Brougham, assistant course manager, Trentham Golf Club
James Bruder, head greenkeeper, Old Course, Walton Heath Golf Club
Michael Budd, course manager, Shirley Park Golf Club
Scott Corrigan, deputy course manager, R&A Lethamhill
David Edmondson, head greenkeeper, Prestwick Golf Club
Andrew Kerr, course manager, Surbiton Golf Club
Steven Thomas, deputy head greenkeeper, Prestonfield Golf Club
