European Institute of Golf Course Architects - Email Newsletter

Welcome to our new format!

To make the information we send you timely, and therefore relevant, you will now hear from us every two months. By combining our monthly Library News and bi-annual e-zine, we will bring you news from members, updates from partners plus library news, now called Resource Centre News, all in one communication.

A new feature is the inclusion of articles from EIGCA members. To kick us off we have President Tom Mackenzie talking about golf being fun and Alan Walker on the issue of slow play.
