Swan lands at BTME

Golf-course architect Howard Swan will present a series of workshops at the BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition (BTME) in January, in association with the Greenkeepers Training Committee (GTC).
Swan is the senior consultant at Swan Golf Designs (SGD) and has long been a passionate advocate of ‘sharing best practice’ within the industry. And he will continue his work when BTME returns to the Harrogate International Centre, from 20 to 22 January.

He will front a short series of seminars for employers within the industry – owners, officers, club and course managers, and head greenkeepers – on bunkering and the safety of golf courses, taking place during the two days preceding BTME. He is also keen to participate in a number of regional workshops currently being mooted by GTC.

Swan stated, “We have long held the belief that if anyone is to learn anything about anything in life then it must come from three things: information, communication and education – or as we refer to it, ICE. That requires the ability to take on information, at whatever level, and retaining it for future benefit. Having a good system of communication facilitates that.” More at: www.swangolfdesigns.com
