Sustainable Golf Week 2023

Golf – Better with Nature

Throughout golf's history, a strong connection with nature has been an integral part of the sport. Whether it's traditional links courses or modern designs, golf and the natural world coexist harmoniously. Biodiversity, the web of life within fairways and water features, underscores golf's deep ties to the environment.

Today, a clear duty awaits golf: to protect, restore, and champion nature in golf. This isn't a choice; it's a commitment golf wholeheartedly embraces. Golf understands that its love for the game is intertwined with preserving the environment that sustains it. This partnership with nature is integral to golf's identity and emphasizes its shared responsibility for a sustainable future.

  1. Safeguarding the environment and preventing ‘net negative’ impacts.
