A bursary was launched at the GCMA 2017 Conference in November, with the support of Rain Bird to see an aspiring Golf Club Manager receive a fully-funded place on the ASQ L5 Diploma in Golf Club Management – delivered by the golf club management partnership of GCMA, The PGA and BIGGA. The candidate will also receive consultation with business mentors from Rain Bird and the GCMA, and a full review of their golf club’s irrigation system.

A well-designed, installed and maintained irrigation system featuring the latest technologies, coupled with good irrigation and water management practices, results in multiple benefits for any club, on and off the course. Rain Bird wants to help more golf clubs benefit from The Intelligent Use of Water™, and is committed to working with and supporting club and course managers to achieve this through the GCMA.

The CEO of the GCMA, Bob Williams, said: “We’ve enjoyed working closely with Rain Bird this year, through our events and publications, to communicate the importance of clubs managing water more effectively. This is an excellent opportunity for someone, who might not have otherwise been able, to progress their career in golf club management, and I’d like to thank Rain Bird for their support.”
