Sustainable agronomy expert

Dr. Simon Watson (pictured above), an industry expert within turf agronomy and specifically sports turf management, has joined The R&A Sustainable Agronomy Service, bringing over 20 years of experience in the turf, amenity and agriculture industry to the service.

Prior to joining, Simon travelled the world gaining experience across different climates, turf conditions and locations, all of which has shaped his expansive knowledge of the industry today.

“My background has allowed me to learn and develop my understanding of the industry across many sectors, and through my time at STRI and Syngenta, I have had an extensive amount of practical experience that I’m excited to utilise with the team,” said Simon.

“The opportunity to join The R&A was something I simply couldn’t miss. Its involvement and commitment to not only fostering the growth of golf, but also the importance it places on sustainability and how golf can be good for the environment, is an ethos that I’m proud to now be a part of.”

Based predominantly in the Southeast of England, Simon is already working with a host of clubs in the area, alongside other venues across the country and into mainland Europe.
