The UN-established World Environment Day is an opportunity to reflect on the value of golf’s green spaces to the environment as a whole.
Last year, GEO Foundation focused on how golf courses could play an important role in beating air pollution.
This year, they are celebrating golf’s contribution to nature – how it helps to conserve the rare and the common, the iconic and the invisible – and how golf’s global diversity of landscapes and ecosystems (the woodlands, the wetlands, the grasslands and the dunes) all offer safe haven for our wildlife.
Of all the environmental and sustainability issues we face, perhaps no other fits so well with golf – an outdoor sport and recreation that brings people into direct contact with their local green spaces, and the species that live there.
