BIGGA Awards 2020 is now closed for new entries.
Thank you to all those who have made nominations. Finalists will be announced in December 2019 and winners receive their awards at the BTME 2020 Welcome Celebration.
Each year BIGGA provides the opportunity for its members to be recognised for their incredible hard work and dedication throughout the year.
BIGGA’s annual awards acknowledge the achievements of its members and are handed out at the BIGGA Welcome Celebration, held at BTME in January each year.
The categories are:
Outstanding Contribution of the Year sponsored by Jacobsen
In recognition of the growing number of members who undertake voluntary work each year for the betterment of the association or any number of charities. The winner may be someone who has raised significant sums for charity or given fantastic support to greenkeepers or the industry.
Championship Performance of the Year sponsored by Rigby Taylor
This award isn't just restricted to those clubs who host majors or European Tour events. A team may have done incredible work to get the course fit for professional events such as the EuroPro Tour or Ladies European Tour, or they may have hosted amateur events, such as a national or important local event. All nominations will be considered on merit.
Greenkeeping Project of the Year sponsored by Baroness and Kubota
This award recognises those greenkeepers or greenkeeping teams who have undertaken a specific project, completed within the 2019 calendar year. However, projects can be long-term, beginning in a previous year. This can be construction, renovation or repair and the possibilities are endless.
Candidates are allowed to nominate themselves or they may be nominated by a colleague or someone who recognises their commitment to greenkeeping. For the first time, this year every nominee will receive a digital certificate with their name on it that they can print off and put on display.
2020 Entries closed on 31 October and we will announce the finalists in December, ahead of BTME 2020.
