Fostering Nature Scorecard - Final Stretch

Fostering Nature Scorecard - Final Stretch

During Sustainable Golf Week, we have built a Fostering Nature Scorecard, revealing actionable steps that every golfer, club, or supporter can take to enhance golf's connection with nature and make it truly #BetterWithNature. Later today we will consolidate the comprehensive 18 'holes' on the scorecard, each representing an opportunity to contribute to a more nature-friendly golfing experience.

We are now into the final stretch in the Fostering Nature Scorecard on day five #SustainableGolfWeek. Here are the last three holes on ways to promote nature.


#16 Track your nature practices and key metrics

OnCourse is a FREE cloud-based program, to review and track sustainability practices and metrics. The team-based platform also provides technical, educational and communications guidance.

#17 Share your stories and highlights

Explore hundreds of tried and tested stories and examples of nature stewardship in golf in the sustainable golf highlights hub. It is completely free open source and any initiatives big and small help share knowledge and inspire more action.  Don’t forget to also add your own!

#18 Get recognized through dedicated industry awards and certification

When golf facilities have submitted a full year of data and have implemented key sustainability practices, they can apply for themed awards and full GEO certification for leadership in sustainable golf. The international ecolabel, administered by the not-for-profit GEO Foundation, is aligned to the ISEAL Credibility Codes and has been developed over many years with broad stakeholder involvement.
