Golf Environment Awards

Aldeburgh Golf Club are delighted to have won the Environmental Golf Course of the Year category in the 2019 Golf Environment Awards.  This is "awarded to clubs that brilliantly demonstrate efficient management across each of the following areas:
Nature Conservation Management
Turfgrass Management
Waste Management
Water Management"

The STRI ecologist Rowan Rumball wrote of Aldeburgh Golf Club;
"Creating what many thought to be impossible, an almost perfect blend of course and ecology to the point where it is hard to tell where one begins and another stops.  All without sacrificing the playability of the course."

The other finalists in this category were, St Andrews Links, Minchinhampton Golf Club, Warrington Golf Club and Ipswich Golf Club.
