Greenkeeping Scholarship Programme 2023
Hosted by Kristianstad’s Golf Club, Sweden 2023
One major aspect of FEGGA’s work is providing opportunities for aspiring Greenkeepers to help develop and advance their careers. This opportunity at Kristianstad’s Golf Club provides a unique opportunity combining valuable work experience within a very experienced team led by Bevan Tattersall, coupled with an educational programme touching all aspects of Turf Management.
FEGGA are delighted to partner Kristianstad’s Golf Club in making this exciting programme available to aspiring Greenkeepers throughout Europe.

I was born in Spain and studied agronomy on an academy level, both in Spain and in England. After that, my objective was to get as much and as varied experience as possible on greenkeeping.
For me, the FEGGA scholarship programme was the best possible opportunity to learn from some of the best professionals in this industry: golf architects, irrigation designers, landscape designers, construction companies, workshop technicians and golf courses superintendents from all around the world.
We spent a year working in 4 different high-end golf courses: working hard but improving ourselves every day. It had an enormous impact on all my career, started from the very basic greenkeeping level, until today.
As an ex FEGGA scholarship student, I cannot recommend the programme strongly enough.
Thank you FEGGA
