SEAN PURDY AWARDED TOP TURF SCHOLARSHIP

12/02/2018

New Zealand Golf is excited to announce that Sean Purdy from Kauri Cliffs Golf Course is the New Zealand Golf Top Turf scholarship winner for 2017.

This scholarship is fiercely contested as many up and coming apprentices aim for higher honours and to be accepted into the Sports Turf Management Programme at Otago Polytechnic.

The course is also entering an exciting phase by bringing online a newly designed and modernised programme to prepare students for the industry of the future. There will be a large amount of emphasis on technology and sustainability to name a few key elements. 

Their year two students will continue their internships at some of the country’s most prestigious turf venues, proving why this is an exciting pathway in golf. 

John Prunnell of the Otago Polytechnic will be taking the new crop of students to Millbrook for a day of work experience on Tuesday 27th February to expose them to the showpiece event in the NZ Golf calendar. 

This will no doubt foster some exciting young talent in greenkeeping that we will see flourish in the future.
