The Dyke Wins Environment Award


The Dyke GC, near Brighton, has won the 2000 BIGGA (British and International Golf Greenkeepers' Association) golf environment award, earning the club 4,000 to assist with environmental work at the club.

Judged by English Nature's chief scientific officer, Keith Duff, and Sports Turf Research Institute ecologists Bob Taylor and Jonathan Hart Woods, the competition identifies proactive and sound environmental practices in association with Amazone Groundcare.

The Dyke's captain Gary Thompson praised the club's course manager David
Ansell, who had persuaded the membership and committee to support his
environmentally-friendly efforts.

"On behalf of the club I'd like to congratulate David on reaching the pinnacle of achievement," he said.

The previous winners of the award include Temple (1999), Lindrick (1998),
Hankley Common (1997), Rudding Park (1996) and Purdis Heath (1995).
