What is the Turfgrass Academy of South Africa up to in 2019?

It is an exciting year for us at the Turfgrass Academy of South Africa!

We have lots planned and are working on some incredibly exciting projects for the Golf Course Maintenance Industry.

We believe that EDUCATION is the key to success – always. So we are entirely committed to developing and facilitating the most relevant & reliable training for the Golf Course Maintenance Industry that we possibly can.

Our existing 2-year program is a hit all around South Africa. We are currently training staff on a number of well ranked & incredibly special golf courses around South Africa. Included in this list are Eagle Canyon & Silver Lakes in Gauteng; Royal Durban, Mount Edgecombe, Simbithi, Cotswold Downs, Durban Country Club, Drakensberg Gardens, Beachwood & San Lameer in KZN; Elements, Euphoria & Zebula in Limpopo; and Skukuza, Ermelo & Middelberg golf clubs in Mpumalanga.

This year will see us rolling fantastic workshops out across the country too. We will be kicking off with our workshops in the Garden Route during April and then hosting them in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg later on.
These workshops are aimed at general greenkeeping staff members and are going to up-skill, up-lift and motivate everyone who attends them.
IT IS GOING TO BE “WOW”!!

Another project that we are very excited about is the development of South Africa’s first OFFICIAL OCCUPATIONAL QUALIFICATION for Golf Course Superintendents. We have been working on this project tirelessly for the last 2 years and are proud and excited about getting it off the ground in the near future.
