Construction and operations management specialist Braemar Golf has signed a strategic consultancy agreement with the Bahrain International Golf Course Company.

BIGCC owns the Royal Golf Club, the recent venue for the European Tour’s Volvo Golf Champions event. Braemar’s relationship with BIGCC began back in 1996, and the company project managed the total rebuild of the course carried out by European Golf Design over the last few years.

“We are delighted to continue our relationship with BIGCC,” said Michael Braidwood, Braemar’s operations director, and BIGCC’s general manager from 1998-2010. “Having formerly be involved in managing the golf club in Bahrain I am very proud that the golf club is now owner operated and so established that it no longer needs a full time external management operator. The team on the ground, led by general manager Susan Stevenson, is doing an excellent job and we are delighted to support them on certain strategic projects.”

Stevenson herself said: “We are very pleased to have the continued support of Braemar Golf to help us with our ongoing strategy. Our number one focus is our customers and growing the golf club’s business, so it is great to have a strategic relationship that helps us look into the future.”
