The British & International Golf Greenkeepers Association has unveiled the line-up for the volunteer support team that will be heading to Carnoustie Golf Links.

Every BIGGA member is eligible to apply to take part and Kimberley Yeldham, deputy head greenkeeper at Royal West Norfolk, is joining the Support Team for the first time.

She said: “I applied to be a part of the team because last year I was given the opportunity to volunteer at the RICOH British Ladies Open, which made me see a different side of greenkeeping and I fell in love with it.''

''I’m really excited to have gotten a place on the team as I hope to be able to promote female greenkeepers and to encourage more to join the industry.

“I also hope to be able to meet new people and take the things I learn back to my own course.”

The 147th Open Championship will be the eighth hosted at Carnoustie, on the course laid out by legendary course architect James Braid in 1926. The 147th Open Championship takes place from 19-22 July 2018.
