Without our courses there would be no golf. The R&A recognises the key role of greenkeepers in preparing courses for play and in taking care of the natural environment which forms such an important part in the enjoyment of a round of golf.
The R&A is working to support greenkeepers in their key role through its advocacy of sustainable course development and management; protecting the enjoyment of the game and safeguarding the financial operations of golf facilities, in a manner which preserves natural environments and enhances community engagement.
Thanks to the success of The Open, The R&A is also able to invest in programmes which provide direct assistance to greenkeepers.
Greenkeeper education is vital to the future sustainability of the sport, and The R&A operates a greenkeeping scholarship programme which supports ambitious greenkeepers wishing to make their way in the industry. This programme provides a financial contribution towards higher education and unique opportunities for successful candidates, which enhance their learning experience and career prospects. Thanks to distance learning, R&A Greenkeeping Scholarships are available to greenkeepers wherever they may be working.
