2022 will mark the 20th year that Bernhard and Company have worked in synergy with BIGGA to deliver the delegation. As such, successful applicants will form part of ‘The 200 Club’ – an exclusive group of professionals that will form part of the 20th iteration of the delegation.

The chosen BIGGA members will represent the UK’s greenkeeping industry, as they develop their network with likeminded professionals from around the globe. They will also take a deep dive into the educational offering at the largest turf management exhibition in the world, this time taking place at The Harbor Drive Convention Center, in San Diego.

Tom Smith, now a senior greenkeeper at Wylihof Golf Club in Switzerland, and member of the San Antonio, 2019 delegation party, commented: “The education is second to none. The week was packed full of learning experiences relating to different aspects of greenkeeping, as well as site visits to top golf courses in the area. I really can’t speak highly enough of the trip and would encourage everybody to put themselves forward.”

Steven Nixon, Director for Bernhard and Company, added: “We are looking forward to resuming the BIGGA Delegation this year after missing out in 2021. The company is excited to be working with BIGGA once again to give something back to the industry we love. I’m certain it will be a career-defining week for our #200Club attendees.”

The GCSAA educational conference takes place from the 5th – 10th February 2022, in San Diego, and the deadline for applications is Friday 17th September 2021 at 5pm BST.

Bernhard’s Three Peaks Challenge

Bernhard’s Three Peaks Challenge: Fourteen members of Bernhard Company will be tackling Snowdon in Wales, Scafell, in England and Ben Nevis in Scotland in a challenge which starts at 2pm on Friday 8th June 2018.

To successfully complete the challenge, the team has set out a plan to reach each of the summits and come back down again before 7pm on Saturday 9th June. Setting off from their Factory in Haverhill, they will spend 12 hours travelling 1,258 miles across the three countries. This will leave them 4,5 hours to climb Snowdon (7 miles long, with an ascent of 723m), 5 hours to climb Scafell (6 miles long with an ascent of 989m) and 6 hours to finish the 10.5 miles with the highest ascent of 1352m of Ben Nevis.
