Five participants named

BIGGA and ICL have revealed the five participants of the seventh ICL Continue to Learn Scholarship. 
The five BIGGA members, drawn from golf clubs across the United Kingdom, have been invited to attend the Continue to Learn education programme which is held each January and coincides with BTME.
The ICL Continue to Learn Scholars for 2023 are: 

  • Patrick Brown, assistant greenkeeper, Wentworth Club
  • Jarno Ruscoe, greenkeeper, Ingestre Park Golf Club
  • Allan Spalding, assistant greenkeeper, Lundin Golf Club
  • Michael Sparke, deputy course manager, Kings Hill Golf Club
  • Nicholas Thorley, deputy head greenkeeper, Saunton Golf Club 

To earn the scholarship, BIGGA members must demonstrate a commitment to developing their own professional abilities by engaging with BIGGA’s Continuing Professional Development scheme. Whether through in-person learning, reading the association’s magazine, Greenkeeper International, or by accessing resources on the association’s website, BIGGA say their members have access to thousands of learning opportunities, all aimed at helping improve their professional abilities. 
The ICL Continue to Learn Scholars will receive three nights’ hotel accommodation and a comprehensive education package offering an array of personal development opportunities. 
BIGGA chief operating officer Sami Strutt said, “BIGGA appreciates that budgets are tight at the moment and that’s why we are providing more opportunities than ever before to access the learning we provide for our members in new and more cost-effective ways. That includes the latest Continue to Learn timetable, to be published early in October and featuring more free education opportunities than ever before.  
“Thanks to ICL, five BIGGA members will also 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 continued support of BIGGA and its members, particularly through the tough economic climate we are all currently navigating.”
