R&A replaces Advisory Panel

12.05am 26th March 2002 - People

The R&A is to establish a Committee devoted to the ‘Golf Course’.The new Committee will replace the current Golf Course Advisory Panel and is being formed following suggestions from delegates at the ‘Changing Course in Europe’ conference held in conjunction with the European Golf Association in Portugal last November.

It will have a world-wide remit to reflect the R&A’s global governance and will be concerned with all aspects of the golf course, paying particular attention to environmental and ecological issues; the use of water; chemicals; climate change; planning of new courses and levels of play.

The Committee will offer best-practice professional advice and information to architects, golf associations and federations, planners, government agencies, golf clubs, greenkeepers and other relevant groups.

The new body within the R&A will encourage and support the co-ordination of research projects and will pay particular attention to issues in countries where golf is still in its infancy.
