Creation of bug hotel with penthouse

Harrogate Golf Club


Written by: William Culver-Dodds

Being a landlocked course without natural streams or rivers, we face challenges in accessing large water resources. However, we are driven to explore all viable options for water supplies while fostering a thriving water ecosystem. As part of our current strategy, we are identifying suitable locations for small ponds, utilising natural springs and drainage water to their fullest potential.

In the meantime, we have implemented an innovative approach by repurposing log piles from our woodland management program. These log piles, strategically placed around the course, have provided a sanctuary for a range of invertebrates. One example is the deluxe log pile adjacent to the pond on our 3rd hole, featuring a penthouse suite with a sedum roof.
