On the opening evening of BTME, BIGGA will be hosting the Welcome Celebration, an informal event that celebrates the achievements of BIGGA members throughout the previous year.
Announced at the Welcome celebration will be the winners of the BIGGA Awards 2022 and nominations are being invited for each of the following categories:
Outstanding Contribution of the Year sponsored by Bernhard and Company
Greenkeeping Project of the Year sponsored by Baroness
Championship Greenkeeping Performance of the Year sponsored by Origin Amenity Solutions
The BIGGA Awards recognise that high performance levels from a dedicated and knowledgeable team are essential to the success of any golf course or championship. The Greenkeeping Project and Championship Greenkeeping Performance awards are an opportunity to showcase a team’s successes, both in the redevelopment or renovation of a course or through the hosting of a major event. Meanwhile, the Outstanding Contribution award celebrates a member of the association who has done exceptional work to support fellow BIGGA members, the industry or the wider community.
This year there are some brilliant prizes on offer in each of the three categories. More information and the nomination form can be found on the BIGGA website.
