The Golf Environment Awards open for nominations

The Golf Environment Awards (GEAs) have been a part of the golf industry for 24 years.

Golf is enjoyed by millions across the globe, and there are now more than 30,000 golf courses worldwide, each having an increasingly important part to play within their local environment.

With the ever-increasing spotlight on environmental matters, it is fundamentally important for golf courses worldwide to assess what they can do to achieve environmental sustainability while continuing to maximise the enjoyment of golf.

The Golf Environment Awards provide the platform from which the golf industry can demonstrate environmental excellence in all its forms. Set up in 1995, the GEAs recognise and reward clubs for their outstanding conservation efforts.

Award categories:

  1. Environmental Golf Course of the Year
  2. Conservation Greenkeeper of the Year
  3. Outstanding Environmental Project of the Year
  4. Operation Pollinator

Golf courses around the world are achieving tangible results by implementing environmentally sustainable management projects across their courses. Examples include turning out-of-play spaces into refuges for important pollinators, working to reintroduce threatened species such as the small blue and working alongside local ecology and environment groups to improve the club’s knowledge on how to manage the species on site.

The GEAs also work as an incentive to get members chatting about ecology on the golf course. These projects are achieving an increase in habitat varieties, improving playing experiences for golfers and providing a positive contribution to wildlife.
