Our team are so excited to be attending BTME 2023, hosted by BIGGA. This event is the Golden Globes of the turf world and is taking place right on our doorstep in Harrogate from the 22nd – 26th of January!
Who is BIGGA?
BTME stands for the BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition. So, you may be asking who BIGGA is. They are the British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association, the largest of its kind in Europe.
BIGGA is made up of passionate greenkeepers, and it is the dedication of loyal members and volunteers that has put them at the top of the golfing game. Since their creation in 1987, BIGGA have become a well-respected and integral part of the golfing community. As they say themselves, “Without Greenkeepers, there would be no golf!”
Greenkeeping is an art. It consists of much more than simply planting seeds and cutting grass. If you’ve ever set foot on a golf course, then you will know that the landscapes they boast are far superior to your average field.
Here at Grass Science Seeds, we provide the best seeds available to ensure that your golf course has a great playing surface. We support greenkeepers through their course maintenance by ensuring that their green is sourced from the highest quality products.
If you’re interested in learning more about what greenkeeping is, head over to BIGGA.
Continue to Learn will be providing learning exhibitions, which are wonderful opportunities to grow your knowledge and network. There will be other exhibitors there too, from the grass roots (literally) to the long-standing pros.
There are entire teams of people responsible for a thriving golf course, and each of their roles is integral to the success of the sport. We are the seed. Yet it takes a lot more to turn those seeds into a wonderful green. BTME aims to award these hard workers.
BTME host the BIGGA awards, which are a wonderful way to acknowledge high flyers and those going the extra mile in the greenkeeping community. By celebrating the successes of our community, we can ensure a constant drive towards the future of golf.
No matter how long you’ve been in the community, there is always more to learn and people to meet . This is what makes these events so special. You don’t want to miss it!
We can’t wait for BTME 2023, and we hope to see you there!
