GOLF at Goodwood’s greenkeeping team has been awarded the GEO (Golf Environment Organisation) Certification for its commitment to sustainability across its courses.

The group said it is the symbol of great golf environments worldwide, designating that a golf facility has met a credible standard in sustainability across six key areas.

To be eligible, the team had to submit an extensive application that evidenced work in nature, water, energy, supply chain, pollution control and community.

The greenkeeping team, led by sports turf and grounds general manager Phil Helmn, set out to achieve the certification knowing it would not just safeguard the environmental future of the courses, but also benefit members and customers and the community.
