As Greenkeepers and Managers we are all working in a constantly changing environment. In order to be able to successfully deal with this and position ourselves to move forward we all need to constantly update and improve our skills.GCSAI CPD enables you to do this and strenghtens your professional credibility.

Our CPD Programme represents a very significant development for Irish Sportsturf Profesionals both now and into the future."

GCSAI Vice President Damien Coleman commented:

" For Irish golf and golf clubs our CPD Programme will ensure staff are updated, informed and part of a motivated and valued team. It's vital as individuals and for our industry we all take advantage of and actively participate in our new CPD Programme."

Another milestone for Irish Golf saw the launching and establishment of the:

  "GOLF EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP"

The Golf Education Partnership saw for the first time the bringing together of all the bodies involved in golf club management in Ireland, inclusive of the GCSAI, IGCMA, PGA and CGI.

The GCSAI were delighted to be part of and instrumental in bringing together the Golf Education Partnership, for what was a landmark event in Irish golf.

Having all the bodies involved in club management under one roof and working together represents a massive opportunity, for our game, our clubs and to us as individuals. 

As part of the Golf Education Partnership our CPD Programme has the full and active support of all the bodies involved, who see and believe strongly, in the added value it delivers for our members and Irish Golf.

If all this wasen't enough we had top class speakers on subjects like Organic Matter Management, Soils and their relationship to sward quality and IPM.

To all those who attended you were part of the biggest golf education event in Ireland to date.
