In January 1987 the British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA) was created due to an amalgamation of the British Golf Greenkeepers Association, The English and International Golf Greenkeepers Association and The Scottish and International Golf Greenkeepers Association.

Now over 30 years old, BIGGA has made outstanding progress to reach its position as a well-respected and integral part of the golf and turf industries. This progress is due to the dedication of very many members who have contributed voluntarily through committee work and support of BIGGA activity, as well as the team of staff based at BIGGA House and in the Regions.

The Association was formed to support greenkeepers and greenkeeping, and to provide a unified voice for the profession.

The Association has a three-tiered structure, ensuring that there is a steady flow of information between grass roots level and the administrative headquarters. The major policy making body is the Board of Management comprising of a Chairman, one representative from each of the five Regions, President and two Guardians.

BIGGA's five Regions covering Scotland, Northern England, Central England, the South East, the South West and South Wales together with a section in Northern Ireland form the second tier. Each Region has its own Board consisting of a representative from each of the Sections and is serviced by a Membership Services Manager.

The Sections consitute the third and final tier. There are currently 26 Sections each with its own committee responsible for organising events for Section members and administering Section matters on behalf of the Association.
