Offering expertise on key topics

The Bernhard Academy has announced a pair of upcoming educational workshops designed to offer expertise on a range of key topics.

The Academy will be running two, one-day courses, on Tuesday April 25 and Wednesday April 26, at its satellite training facility, at Moortown Golf Club in Leeds. Organisers say the courses are designed for operators of cylinder mowers and anybody wanting to gain a better understanding of turf appearance through quality of cut, will operate on a first come, first served basis, with limited space available.

Director of education for the Bernhard Academy, Craig Haldane, said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for greenkeepers and grounds people from around the country to join us for a day of enlightening education. This facility at Moortown is a great space to come to learn, and enhance your knowledge of mower set up, the importance of grinding, and how to communicate with stakeholders.

“There are a great number of learning outcomes,” he added. “These include the agronomic benefits associated with quality of cut, best modern practices in mower set up, the skills to effectively communicate with your stakeholders, and what impact you have on the day-to-day running of the business.”

Attendees will be introduced to a wide range of information they can take away, while learning the correct way to set up units, depending on site conditions and/or turf species and time of year. They’ll better understand the principles of cutting units and be able to take control of their cutting unit maintenance regime by understanding the fundamentals of using grinders to get the best out of mowing equipment – ensuring the highest quality of cut year-round. 

These one-day educational workshops are aimed at course managers, equipment managers, deputies, mechanics, greenkeepers, apprentices, and anyone who operates cylinder mowers and wants to gain a better understanding and appreciation for turf appearance through quality of cut.
