FEGGA Run workshops introducing the new translated version of OnCourse Portugal

Following the launch of OnCourse Portugal, FEGGA took to the road to run workshops introducing the new translated version of OnCourse Portugal. FEGGA ran four Workshops covering the whole Country and connected with half the golf courses in Portugal. The Workshops covered an introduction of the concept of OnCourse, we took all the respective attendees through the sign-up process, and the many tools that make up what is now a very good resource for golf clubs to use.

First stop was Oporto GC & great to spend time with the local greenkeepers supporting “Responsible Golf Course Management”  The second day saw us move south from Porto to Cascais for the second OnCourse Portugal Workshop, We received excellent response at Quinta Da Marinha, with a very motivated group of people sharing their knowledge & experiences.

Day three saw us visiting Palmares Golf Club in Lagos, home club to the FEGGA Vice Chairman Joel Nunes. Again we were meet with a great gathering of greenkeepers, sharing their thoughts & helping make our Responsible efforts in Turf Management stronger. The last venue was Quinta do Lago. Again the discussion was very positive and engaging and in how you approach Responsible Golf Course Management.

There was a very strong message that came from all the participates during all the Workshops, and a real commitment to work together, sharing their experiences for the better development of the greenkeeping profession, and ultimately the game of golf. A short Presentation was made at the recent FEGGA Conference, and already other Associations are planning to run their own OnCourse Development Workshops.

Thanks must go to the R&A for supporting this initiative. We would also like to thank GEO, the Portuguesse Greenkeepers Association, and the Portuguesse Golf Federation for their support in delivering the Workshops.
