Green Light for Scottish Courses


Elmwood, Gleneagles, Kilmacolm and Linlithgow are the first recipients of the new environmental excellence award set up by the Scottish Golf
Course Wildlife Group and the Committed to Green Foundation to promote environmental conservation within the game.

"These four sites have worked extremely hard over the past few years, tackling a wide range of environmental issues in a planned and professional manner, establishing high quality environmental programmes which have made a real difference to the quality of their local environments." said Jonathan Smith, senior golf course advisor with the Scottish Golf Union.

The new scheme is open to any golf club or local authority in the UK. Those taking part have to meet specific criteria in a number of areas, including nature conservation, landscaping, environmental planning and waste management.
