Following on from last week’s announcement that the PPUI and the Golf Course Superintendents Association of Ireland (GCSAI) have entered into an educational partnership, the PPUI are delighted to announce details of a National Education Day hosted by the GCSAI.

GCSAI and their educational partners will deliver a one day course on Saturday 27th May at Lakeside Pitch & Putt Club, Templemore, Co. Tipperary.

The seminar will cover important aspects of course management and maintenance including weed identification, greens nutrition, machinery maintenance, fertiliser application, machinery demonstration and much more.

This event and all future events will only be available to those who are registered with the GCSAI. Below is a link to the registration form for the Education Day at Lakeside.
