The course was held at the Radcliffe Conference Centre located on the Warwick University Campus in Warwickshire and attracted delegates from England, Wales, Scotland, Spain, France and Oman all from a variety of backgrounds from General Managers to Trainee Managers and PGA Professionals.
MDP part 1 is the first of 5 Management Development Programmes that CMAE run, all designed to help Club Industry Supervisors and Managers become more informed, perform better at their jobs and help them progress on their career path in Club Management.
Kenny Monaghan, PGA Professional at Linlithgow Golf Club and a delegate on the course said: “The CMAE MDP 1 course was a wonderful experience for me. The course itself was very engaging and filled with very enthusiastic presenters from a variety of different backgrounds. This was a real eye opener for me in the world of club management and I have already started looking at what I can do next to develop myself as Modern PGA Golf professional. I would strongly recommend the MDP journey to anyone thinking of progressing with the club management industry.”
The next MDP 1 in England will be held in London from 17th – 21st July 2017.
