Programme Leader - Agronomy, Leadership and Management

Phil Helmn

Phil Helmn is a Master Greenkeeper (1 of a select few worldwide) and has risen through the greenkeeping ranks from trainee to sports turf General Manager. Since leaving college in 1987, where he gained his diploma in sports turf science with honours, he’s lived and breathed golf and greenkeeping all his life.

Phil has managed full golf course construction projects, grow-in’s, re-builds and regular maintenance operations with teams on a wide range of soil types in the UK., Europe and America and has used these experiences to fine tune his mentoring and common-sense management style. Phil has also spent time college lecturing when his busy timetable has allowed and became an industry assessor to help support more work based practical forms of learning. Phil enjoys speaking at regional, national and international conferences on turf leadership and has been successful in applying these into more workshop style formats enabling a more ‘hands on’ learning experience. Phil’s a natural born communicator and his infectious passion for supporting and sharing his experiences and knowledge in a no nonsense, easy to understand way shines through at every level.

At home, Phil is the proud father of four children, Emily eighteen and Florrie, Harry and Artie ten-year-old triplets.
