What Our Members Have to Say

IGFH is an invaluable resource for job searching, but I think especially for those already set in a career, it’s a great way to hear new voices. They say you should never stop learning, and IGFH is a great way to keep up with new trends and ideas.
The International Greenkeepers for Hire (IGFH) is a great organisation for greenkeepers. I particularly like the IGFH's Facebook group where knowledge about the profession is shared.
