Welcoming the new Director of Education for Bernhard Academy, Craig Haldane.

Haldane starts his new position with 26 years of experience in the golf and turf industries behind him.

After spending many years in the Middle East, working in both Bahrain and Dubai at venues such as the Emirates Golf Club, he took on the role of Golf Courses Manager at Gleneagles in 2018. During his time there, he oversaw the playing of the Solheim Cup and more recently the Senior Open Championship.

Craig Haldane will take up his new role with immediate effect, taking the lead in developing the Bernhard Academy. He will be developing the training programmes that will form key elements of the Academy.

Bernhard and Company Managing Director, Steven Nixon, said: “We’re thrilled to unveil Craig as Director of Education for the Bernhard Academy. Craig has had an outstanding career as Golf Courses Manager at Gleneagles and at some of the best venues in the Middle East. He’s undoubtedly one of the most well-respected and knowledgeable members of the industry and brings with him a passion and drive to help others.”

Discussing his new role, Haldane added: “I’m delighted to be following my passion, which is developing both the industry and its people. My career has allowed me to understand the need for education to continue to move forward, and the Bernhard Academy has a wonderful opportunity to provide that. To be given the chance to lead that process and develop these educational programmes for the future is really exciting.”

The Bernhard Academy is located at our factory in Haverhill, with a further satellite training facility at Moortown Golf Club and Royal Norwich. Haldane and his team will be refining existing training modules and creating new programmes designed to help greenkeepers and turf professionals take their performance to the next level.
