Golf Environment Europe

Golf Environment Europe

Developed by the non-profit Golf Environment Group, this website "provides an overview of environmental sustainability activities within the golf sector"; "sets out an environmental management and accreditation system for European golf facilities"; "provides guidance on the sustainable development of new golf courses"; and "communicates the activities of the Forum for Golf and Environment." The site offers a technical library which features articles on such topics as water resource management, landscape and cultural heritage, land use and development planning, and golf course construction. The site is intended to "help raise awareness about the relationship between golf and the environment"; "demonstrate the wide range of initiatives that are taking place to improve golf's sustainability"; and provide practical guidance and ideas on the role that the reader can play in the implementation of environmental best practices." Although some of the resources are geared for European guidelines, most of them are applicable in the United States as well.
