Golf is for the birds (and the butterflies….)

June 21st, 2016

News of the R&A’s GreenLinks programme for The Open Championship at Royal Troon next month includes a welcome reminder of the benefits of sustainable golf course management. Much of the Championship will take place in an environmentally designated protection area – a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) – where recent audits have recorded 71 species of bird and 14 species of butterfly. For more information visit

If you are lucky enough to be going to The Open then viewing this website in advance is essential.
