Mature student Gregg lands greenie award

A CAREER change in his early 40s has led to trainee greenkeeper Gregg Hood winning SRUC Elmwood’s annual John Deere HNC Student of the Year Award. Gregg was selected for his conscientious and enthusiastic approach to his programme of studies during the 2017/2018 academic year.

Born and bred in Glasgow, Gregg had a successful career as a qualified accountant and then a mortgage broker before making the jump into greenkeeping at the age of 42. “It was one of those life-changing decisions I just had to make,” he said. Gregg started volunteering at St Andrews Links two days a week from September 2017 before he landed a seasonal position. His tutor Paul Miller added: “We all look forward to watching his growth in the industry and the contribution he will make to greenkeeping as his career progresses.”
