Inaugural Tacit Freshman Tournament

Tacit, the largest and most prestigious golf course equipment manufacturer in the UK and Ireland are hosting a series of golf days across the UK and Ireland specifically for Deputy Course Mangers and a Member of the Committee in a pair’s competition.

Tacit, always forward thinking in their outlook are encouraging the professional development of the future leaders in the green keeping industry by introduction of the “Freshman” tournament to foster a growing relationship between those people working on the coal face and the club management.

Each regional qualifier will include breakfast on arrival, 18 holes of great golf,nearest the pin challenges and other prizes followed by an informal dinner and presentation.

The winner and runners-up from each venue will qualify for the grand finale at the Belfry with 18 holes of golf on the Brabazon course, host to four Ryder Cups and countless other European Tour events. Following the final will be a drinks reception, gala dinner and one nights luxury accommodation at the Hotel. Prizes will include personal ones as well as those specifically for the club they represent.

Tim Webb, Managing Director at Tacit believes “This is a daring step to go beyond the predictable and find a way of bringing youthful exuberance together with experience to a tournament.” It is very easy, he explained “to go on academical courses and recite what has been taught, it is much more difficult to gain experience and to create associations and friendships that will set you in good stead for your future. We wanted to find a way of getting our younger professionals who are looking to get into management in the future, a way of learning life experiences that cannot be taught in the classroom and then can be built on with the friendships and experiences gained for the benefit of the club as well as their professional development. What better way than by playing golf together? ”
