Environmental advisory service to continue

9.15am 7th April 2006 - Management Topics

Continued funding from English Nature, the English Golf Union and the R&A means that the English Golf Environmental Advisory Service, created in 2002, can be extended for a fifth year.
All EGU affiliated golf clubs that have not taken part in the scheme, will be contacted with details of the project, which is being administered by STRI.
So far 180 golf clubs have benefited from the scheme over the last four years and over 100 clubs have received a framed certificate, acknowledging their commitment to ecological good practice.
Successful applicants will receive two ecological advisory visits with follow up reports. Clubs which successfully implement agreed environmental targets will receive a framed certificate to recognize their efforts. In addition all affiliated clubs will continue to have access to the free golf environmental support service run by STRI, including telephone contact and written advice in the form of leaflets providing conservation information on issues ranging from pesticides to management of the rough.
If accepted on the scheme the clubs will be asked to pay a contribution of £195 towards the costs. Deadline for receipt of application is May 1st 2006.
