New director of education

Bernhard and Company has announced the appointment of a new director of education for the Bernhard Academy.

Craig Haldane will take up his new role with immediate effect, taking the lead in developing the Academy. Over the coming months, he will play an important role in developing the training programmes that will form key elements of the Academy.

Speaking on Craig's appointment, Bernhard and Company managing director, Steven Nixon, said, “We’re thrilled to unveil Craig as director of education for the Bernhard Academy. Craig has had an outstanding career as golf courses manager at Gleneagles and at some of the best venues in the Middle East. He’s undoubtedly one of the most well-respected and knowledgeable members of the industry and brings with him a passion and drive to help others.”

Craig added, “I’m delighted to be following my passion, which is developing both the industry and its people. My career has allowed me to understand the need for education to continue to move forward, and the Bernhard Academy has a wonderful opportunity to provide that. To be given the chance to lead that process and develop these educational programmes for the future is really exciting.”

The Bernhard Academy is located at the company’s factory in Haverhill, with further satellite training facilities at Moortown Golf Club and Royal Norwich. Craig and his team will be refining existing training modules in addition to creating entirely new programmes that the company says are designed to help greenkeepers and turf professionals take their performance to the next level.
