Greenkeeper Scholarship

Introduction to the Programme

One major aspect of FEGGA’s work is providing opportunities for aspiring Greenkeepers to help develop and advance their careers. This opportunity at Kristianstad’s Golf Club provides a unique opportunity combining valuable work experience within a very experienced team led by Bevan Tattersall, coupled with an educational programme touching all aspects of Turf Management. FEGGA are delighted to partner Kristianstad’s Golf Club in making this exciting programme available to aspiring Greenkeepers throughout Europe.

Do you want a career in Golf Course Management?

Careers in Golf Course Management have become increasingly popular and as a result more education courses have become available which will enhance the individuals. The challenge is finding suitable practical Greenkeeping work experience to complement this formal education. FEGGA in association with Kristianstad’s Golf Club in Sweden have put together what we believe is the perfect opportunity for a greenkeeper to gain practical experience along with a well-structured lecture programme that will have a long-term benefit to any Greenkeeper at the end of the six-month programme. Based in the idyllic and historic seaside village of Åhus, Kristianstad’s Golf Club is one of Sweden and Europe’s finest golf complexes. On this 36-hole club major investment has taken place since the course was privately purchased several years ago. A total renovation of its East Course was completed in 2017. A total renovation of its West course was completed in June 2021 a ‘state of the art’ new Maintenance facility was opened in 2019, and resort houses and sports centre were opened in 2020. Kristianstad’s Golf Club is the 5th oldest club in Sweden, first founded in 1924. The Club prides itself on quality and service and strives to produce the best playing surfaces for its members, guests and tournament golf.
