GC 2030 - Perspectives on the future of greenkeeper education
R&A Golf Course 2030 project
Bringing together two projects carried out as part of the R&A's Golf Course 2030 initiative, this session will provide an overview of the combination of impacts from climate change, resource constraints and regulation and why it will require an agile, adaptable and resilient greenkeeping workforce. The ability to adapt to change will be critical and the education provided to greenkeepers throughout their careers must reflect this. The skills to meet these challenges demands respect and the profile of the course manager must be raised to recognise their talents and professionalism.
Presented by Dr Paul Miller, Senior Lecturer in Golf Course Management, SRUC
