Courses

Courses on offer are:

Level 2 Certificate in Golf Greenkeeping (0143)

Advanced Apprenticeship Level 3 Work-Based Diploma in Horticulture (Sports Turf – Greenkeeper)

Level 2 Certificate in Golf Greenkeeping

The apprenticeship standard typically takes two years to complete. This course would suit you if you want to pursue a career in Sports Turf (Greenkeeper). 

This is a work based course and will include at least 20% ‘off- the- job’ training. Off-the-job training is defined as learning which is undertaken outside of the normal day to-day working environment and leads towards the achievement of your apprenticeship.  This can include:

  • The teaching of theory (for example: lectures, role playing, simulation exercises, online learning or manufacturer training),
  • Practical training: shadowing, mentoring, industry visits and attendance at competitions,
  • Learning support and time spent writing assessments/assignment

There are four key turf grass areas on a golf course - greens, tees, fairways and areas of rough, each of which requires a different type of maintenance. Using a range of equipment and machinery safely and competently will play a major part within an apprentice's training programme. Golf Greenkeepers will also be involved in hazard, environmental and ecological operations which may include bunker maintenance, planting turf, trees, shrubs and developing wildlife habitats. The skills required to become a competent greenkeeper will be acquired whilst working on the golf course.
