To five BIGGA members

The British & International Golf Greenkeepers Association and Partner ICL have revealed the five recipients of the sixth ICL Continue to Learn Scholarship ahead of the education programme’s return to in-person learning in January 2022.

The successful BIGGA members are:

  • Kevin Butler, greenkeeper, Saunton Golf Club
  • Michael Gibbons, greenkeeper, Dunham Forest Golf Club
  • Abigail Laker, greenkeeper, Frilford Heath Golf Club
  • Michael Russell, greenkeeper, Preston Golf Club
  • Jeremy Ward, head greenkeeper, Bradford Moor Golf Club

In addition, the five BIGGA members who participated in the ICL scholarship in 2021, when Continue to Learn took place entirely online, have also been invited to attend the in-person event in January 2022.
To earn an ICL Continue to Learn Scholarship, BIGGA members must demonstrate a commitment to developing their own professional abilities by engaging with BIGGA’s Continuing Professional Development scheme.
The ICL Continue to Learn Scholars will receive three nights’ hotel accommodation and 15 hours of training and personal development opportunities as BIGGA’s education programme returns to Harrogate Convention Centre in January 2022.
BIGGA’s head of learning & development, Sami Strutt, said, “After hosting Continue to Learn as an online event in 2021 due to COVID-19, we’re thrilled to be able to host in-person learning once again in January 2022. Thanks to ICL, five BIGGA members will enjoy the countless hours of personal and professional development that come with attending BTME and Continue to Learn. Our sincere thanks are extended to ICL for their continuing support of BIGGA and its members.”
Continue to Learn at BTME 2022 will take place at Harrogate Convention Centre from Sunday 23 to Wednesday 26 January 2022. The education programme will run alongside the BTME exhibition.
