Ryder Cup Showcase for Golf’s Green Drive

September 9th, 2014

Gleneagles is buzzing with activity: from grandstands to tents and temporary buildings; to recycling, temporary power, media and merchandise, dozens of suppliers and contractors are putting things in place for golf’s greatest spectacle, indeed one the world’s most viewed sporting events

As part of this work to get everything ready, many of those companies have also signed up to play their part in making this the greenest and most sustainable Ryder Cup yet.

The effort is part of the ‘Green Drive’, an initiative to integrate nature conservation, resource efficiency and community engagement across the staging and legacies of the event. In short we are about to witness a festival of all that is best about the Game of Golf.
