The R&A Golf Course Committee is launching a worldwide climate map, to inform on grass species selection, which will be available on their best practice website, The interactive map shows where warm or cool season grasses are most appropriate and the Transition Zone where often difficult choices have to be made with regard the most sustainable turfgrass selection. The map is linked to text on the site which describes the turfgrass species in detail and this new addition to will be of great value to course developers, architects and turf managers.

The Open Road to sustainability
The Open Championship at Hoylake last July was considered to be a great success, with the condition and set up of the golf course receiving plaudits from those playing and watching alike. A DVD, produced by The R&A Golf Course Committee, will be shown that highlights the sustainable nature of the course. With footage taken both from The Open itself and again nine weeks after Tiger Woods picked up the Claret Jug for the third time, this DVD considers the recovery achieved after hosting a major golf event.
