Welcoming the new Partnership Ross McMurray, President of the European Institute of Golf Course Architects (EIGCA) said, “Partnership with the EIGCA provides an opportunity for our Partners to gain direct access to golf course architects. It is also greatly valued by our Members giving them the chance to learn about and use the latest advances in industry practices and technologies. We look forward to introducing Bernhard to our members at our upcoming annual meeting in Bruges in April and learning more about their specialist technology and the benefits it can offer.”
Jonathan Pendry, Director of Agronomy for Bernhard says, “We are very proud to be a Bronze Partner of the EIGCA. Bernhard and Company is committed to providing innovative technology solutions to the sportsturf industry, enabling managers to deliver exceptional facilities. Being a Partner of the EIGCA, we will be able to work closer with golf course architects and its other Partners & Affiliates, sharing with them technologies that will enhance the golf course design, construction and maintenance processes. We believe these technologies will play a significant role as the sportsturf industry becomes ever more environmentally focused.”
