Royal Dornoch Golf Club’s deputy course manager is one of an elite international group chosen to take part in a prestigious industry event in the US next year.
Scott Aitchison is among a ten-strong delegation from BIGGA (the British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association) selected to attend the Golf Industry Show in San Diego in February with the help of Bernhard Company.
The event, organised by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, brings together golf course superintendents, owners/operators, chief operating ofﬁcers, architects, builders and equipment managers, as well as more than 6,000 buyers from over 60 countries.
After being selected from a huge number of applicants, Scott underwent a successful interview to secure his place.
He said: “I feel extremely fortunate and proud to be representing Royal Dornoch Golf Club and the British greenkeeping industry in the US and I thank Bernhard Company and BIGGA for this incredible opportunity. I cannot wait.”
Neil Hampton, Royal Dornoch’s general manager, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for Scott. To attend such a prestigious international occasion and meet other course managers from different parts of the world will be an enormous help to his career. The club will also benefit from the knowledge and skills he will bring back.”
Applications for the 2020 Bernhard delegation will be launched early in the new year.
