The European Institute of Golf Course Architects (EIGCA) has announced that the British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA) is to become its ninth patron, joining the likes of the European Tour and The R&A.

EIGCA and BIGGA will work together to provide support for each other’s membership in a number of areas. BIGGA will help develop the EIGCA’s new points-based Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme, in line with BIGGA’s own CPD system which has been running successfully for some time. In return, EIGCA will provide speakers for BIGGA events and education days and assist with technical guidance. As part of the relationship BIGGA will recommend its members use the services of EIGCA members when considering design or redevelopment work to their courses and EIGCA will similarly promote the advantages of BIGGA membership.

EIGCA president, Ross McMurray (pictured left), said: “I would like to thank BIGGA’s CEO Jim Croxton [pictured right] and head of member learning Stuart Green for their assistance in helping us to bring the EIGCA’s CPD Programme to life. EIGCA members will gain access to a tremendous amount of technical information.”

Croxton added: “We look forward to working closely with the institute and its members over the coming years. Greenkeepers play a vital role in the health of the sport of golf and I hope the support of EIGCA will bear fruit as we strive to have our members appreciated for their efforts.”
