The EGEU was formed in 2008 and during that time has established Pan European Standards at three levels, Greenkeeper, Supervisor, and Course Manager. The current work to date can be seen on the EGEU website at www.egeu.eu
The EGEU and its work has been supported and acknowledged by golf, with the European Golf Association and the R&A being totally supportive of this strong move to Europeanise Greenkeeping educational Standards for the benefit of the game that some six million golfers enjoy playing in Europe today.The Standards have already had a an influence on Countries focusing on their educational programmes and will be of real benefit to the new emerging golf nations as they take their first steps in creating new educational programmes to support the future development of the game.
Dean Cleaver will take responsibility to promote the EGEU and in his role as Executive Officer to FEGGA he is well placed to assist member organisations and Countries looking to use the EGEU standards in greenkeeping training.
David Golding GTC’s Education Director will advise on all matters relating to the content of the three levels of Occupational Standards; Greenkeeper, Golf Course Supervisor and Golf Course Manager. Quality of education and training provision will also be within David’s advisory responsibilities.
John Holliday will operate as the EGEU’s Finance Director and looks forward to ensuring the EGEU has a sustainable future beyond the three years funding awarded by the R&A
