Charterhouse Turf Machinery has agreed to provide educational opportunities for golf course professionals nationwide for the British & International Golf Greenkeepers Association (BIGGA), while Rigby Taylor has also announced a major sponsorship package.

In its new capacity as ‘education supporter’ for the association, Charterhouse will provide professional development opportunities for BIGGA members.

For over 35 years, Charterhouse has been a leading provider of professional maintenance machinery to keep both natural and artificial surfaces in first-rate condition. The company distributes the Redexim range of aerators, overseeders, topdressers and scarifiers for natural turf. To complement this, the Graden range of pedestrian verticutters and the BLEC range of specialist landscaping and turfcare products, are also available.

Charterhouse sales manager Nick Darking said: “We have been a supporter of BIGGA for many years, in many different guises. We are proud to now be working alongside BIGGA as an education supporter, helping to provide valuable professional development and educational opportunities to those in our greenkeeping industry.”

Meanwhile, Rigby Taylor is to sponsor BIGGA’s three annual golf tournaments, the National Championship, the Golf Management Trophy and the Greenkeepers Benevolent Fund Golf Day.

Rigby Taylor will also be involved in all qualifying matches for each tournament and offering further support through the involvement of its key suppliers. In addition the company will provide technical advice on tournament preparation and product support.

Richard Fry, Rigby Taylor’s marketing director, said: “Our sponsorship of the tournaments is the company’s expression of confidence in the industry and a vehicle for gaining closer ties not only with golf course managers and greenkeepers but also their greens’ committees and other key decision-makers.”

Jim Croxton, BIGGA CEO, added: “These events bring together all levels of the golf club structure, helping to build stronger relationships within teams and across barriers.”
