July 4, 2011

Braemar Golf is pleased to announce that two students from the University of Birmingham’s Applied Golf Management Studies (AGMS) Degree will be placed at their managed facilities this summer.
James Eades a third year student will be taking up a placement at the recently opened Pravets Golf and Spa in Bulgaria which is also the venue for the PGA Professional Championship of Europe which takes place in September. James last year took up a place at Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club and gained a great deal of knowledge from the experience.

This year James will be assisting Pravet’s Director of Instruction, William Dow, at their fantastic Academy and also assisting Director of Golf, Alan Rogut, in the run up to the PGA Professional Championship of Europe.

2nd year student Thomas Devine is off to Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club in Oman for two months. Thomas will be working closely alongside PGA Professionals Alex Day and David White where he will be assisting Alex at the Golf Academy and David within the Golf Operations.
The Applied Golf Management Studies course is a unique partnership between the PGA and University of Birmingham (UoB) - the only golf degree to offer the opportunity to apply for PGA membership.

The overall aim of the degree is to raise the level of education in golf to equip candidates for increasingly demanding roles such as a Director of Golf. Only 25 places are available in each year with strict entry requirements such as excellent 'A’ level profile (or equivalent) and a Handicap of

"I am really excited about the opportunity of going to Bulgaria to work at the Pravets Golf and Spa. The academy facilities look excellent and to have an opportunity to experience the run up to a major event in the PGA Professional Championship of Europe is an added bonus" said Eades.

Devine, commenting on his placement said "James has told me a lot about his experiences in Oman last summer and I am really looking forward to the challenge. Despite being hot there in the summer there is still plenty of demand for golf lessons and the club still runs an active calendar of events".

"Braemar Golf is delighted to participate in placing the AGMS students at their management facilities. We are constantly on the lookout for good people to move into management positions, so by providing the students a placement, it gives them a taster of what is expected of them in the future" added Michael Braidwood, Braemar Golf’s Operations Director.
