I'm pleased to announce that the Indian Golf Union's Greenkeeper Education Programme will be held in September and October at four of the finest clubs in India. Following up on the successful first year of the programme which had a focus on Introduction to Greenkeeping, the 2012 programme expands with a focus on Improving Course Conditions.
The intensive weeklong educational programme will be delivered at these host clubs:
- Kodaikanal GC, Tamil Nadu (South Zone), 24 to 28 September
- Poona Club, Pune (West Zone), 1 to 5 October
- Army Golf, Delhi (North Zone), 8 to 12 October
- Royal Calcutta GC (East Zone), 15 to 19 October
Full information on the program is available at www.in.asianturfgrass.com including lecture notes and presentations slides from the 2011 programme, the first two issues of the Greenkeeping Information Service, and photos of the educational events in 2011.
Once again supported by The R&A, this IGU educational course is designed to provide information that will lead to improved playing conditions on golf courses in India. The educational programme is being led by Dr. Micah Woods of the Asian Turfgrass Center with additional support from the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
