Earlier this month we held our annual R&A Scholars field study. Scholars from across the UK and mainland Europe took part in sessions including golf course architecture with Tom Mackenzie and the machair environment with Joanne Ferguson from NatureScot.

They also gained an understanding of the role Askernish Golf Club plays as part of a community owned estate. In a change to previous visits the scholars were accompanied by R&A Head of Sustainable Agronomy for Championship venues Richard Windows and Head Greenkeeper of The Old Course in St Andrews Gordon McKie, both of whom were responsible for preparing St Andrews for the worlds best golfers to take part in the 150th Open Championship back in July.

Richard and Gordon joined with our Course Manager Allan MacDonald in sessions focussed on sustainable greenkeeping and golf course management. The weather was kind and an enjoyable and educational week was had by all, we all look forward to hosting this important week in the Askernish calendar again next year.
