Queensland’s first Greenkeepers Certificate has gone to Mr George Riib of McLeod Country Golf club at Mount Ommaney in Brisbane.

Minister for employment and Industrial Affairs, Vince Lester, recently presented the certificate to Mr Riib at Parliament House.

Mr Riib who presently works at McLeod Country Golf club completed part time study at Hyde T.A.F.e. College, Sydney.

This study, combined with his extensive employment in the industry in Queensland has allowed him to be the first Queenslander to be awarded the trade certificate.

Mr Riib is the Queensland president of the Australian golf Club Superintendent Association.

Mr ester said the industry and Commerce Training commission was presently conducting a large survey of the golf and bowling industry concerning the possible introduction of an apprenticeship or traineeship in greekeeping in Queensland.

“The result of this survey will be announced later this year,” Mr Lester said.

“It is likely that, if there is sufficient demand, greenkeeping training will be introduced some time in 1986.”

Greenkeeping, like tourism and hospitality is another industry which is growing with the increase in leisure and early retirement.

Mr Lester said that the survey on greenkeeping was part of the Training Commission’s ongoing programme of research and development in skilled occupations in Queensland.
