Four Managers/Senior Staff from Golf and Tennis Clubs in CMAE London & Home Counties Region received their MDP Diplomas at a recent ceremony hosted by the Richmond Golf Club. The Diploma is awarded across Europe by CMAE as a key qualification in their Management Development Programme (MDP).

The four successful recipients were Les Howkins and John Maguire of the Richmond Golf Club, Robert Brewer from Royal Wimbledon Golf Club and Tristan McIlroy of Roehampton Club.

Each had attended CMAE’s MDP Parts One and Two during the last 2 years, followed by an exam which included the submission of a work based assignment which looked at and resolved a problem at their own clubs by applying key learnings from the MDP curriculum.

Launched in 2011 the highly regarded MDP Pathway has already been promoted and delivered in Scotland, England, Ireland, France, Spain and Italy. The programme delivers top class education to club managers and club industry professionals on the 10 core competencies of modern club management.

David Balden, Chairman of the CMAE London and Home Counties Region, said of their success “it always gives me pleasure to hand out the Diploma certificates to our industry colleagues; they have worked hard to attain the Diploma and are putting the knowledge to good use back at their clubs”

The MDP pathway was originally developed by the Club Managers Association of America and thanks to their vision and generosity, has been given to CMAE who then adapted the materials for the European Golf, Sports and City Club Markets.

In 2015/16 the CMAE will deliver another 14 MDP courses throughout the UK and Europe.
