BIGGA members are being invited to join a 10-strong team that will enjoy the opportunity of a lifetime in San Diego, California.

The Bernhard sponsored BIGGA Delegation will attend the Golf Industry Show, the largest single event in the turf industry. Delegates will get the opportunity to sample the educational conference and have the opportunity to network with the world's largest gathering of turf care specialists.

The event takes place from 2 to 7 February 2019.

David Warner was a delegate in 2018 and you can read all about his experiences on the trip here.

David said: "This trip has helped me believe in myself. If I was to make it to a course manager role, I know with the support of BIGGA and the contacts I made on this trip, I'm sure I will be a success.

"I would like to thank Bernhard Company and BIGGA for this unmissable, once-in-a-lifetime trip."

To apply for a place on the BIGGA Delegation, simply go to and complete the online application by September 14 2018.

Candidates will be invited for interview with BIGGA and Bernhard in November and 10 successful applicants will be announced in the December issue of Greenkeeper International.

Each delegate will receive return flights to San Diego, hotel accommodation and transfers for the duration of the event, an entry ticket to GIS 2019, two days of seminars at the GCSAA educational conference and a guided tour of a top US course.

To be eligible for a place, you simply have to be a full BIGGA member.

Focused on education and professional development, this is an ideal opportunity to expand your knowledge base, share best practice and build your network of industry contacts.
