BIGGA Winners Announced at BTME 2017


The winner of the Championship Greenkeeping Performance of the Year sponsored by GBR Technology was Lee Bishop and the team at Burnham Beeches Golf Club, for preparing and maintaining the course during the English Senior Women’s Open Amateur Strokeplay from 14-16 June 2016.

BIGGA Chief executive officer Jim Croxton said: “This is an unheralded venue, with a small team who overcame substantial weather problems with lots of rain. Despite this the golf course was in fantastic condition and England Golf, who hosted the event, said that if they could take that greenkeeping team around the country with them, they would do.”

Runner-up in the category was Phil Chiverton and the team at The Grove for preparing and maintaining the course during the British Masters supported by Sky Sports from 13-16 October 2016.

GBR Technology congratulate both Lee Bishop and team and also Phil Chiverton and team!
