Being members of BIGGA has allowed me and my team to become better greenkeepers. We are a small club with low resources so taking advantage of the Refund of Fees scheme has been invaluable towards funding our own training, the CPD scheme also helps to support us further in our careers. Thank you to all the partners, supporters and individual contributors who make this possible.
