The key asset to any golf club is the golf course itself, so it is vital that this is of the highest quality to retain and attract members and visitors. In addition to quality playing surfaces, issues such as nature conservation and enhancement, landscape and cultural heritage, climate change, sustainable turf management, water resource management and pollution prevention all need to be considered.

Clubhouses, maintenance facilities and professional shops are all areas where significant cost savings can be achieved through water and waste management and energy efficiency.

Addressing environmental issues in conjunction with making a golf facility economically efficient and socially inclusive will result in a sustainably managed business.

These pages contain information on issues relating to sustainable golf facility management. In this section you will find a range of guidance, case studies and other material which will assist you in your efforts to tackle environmental management of golf facilities.
