Eco Golf Rules

By Golfrefugees

I’m sure you all know that it’s Earth week.

To commemorate this eco initiative, Golf Refugees are submitting proposals to the governing bodies of golf (USGA and R&A) to revise their Rules of Golf to incorporate ‘green’ measures.

If you support our eco proposals below, please submit your comments and we’ll include your name with our submission.

Eco Golf Rules;

All tournament approved golf balls should contain a minimum 25% recycled materials.

All tournament golf courses to submit and implement detailed five year plans to reduce water consumption and fertilizer usage by 10% per year.

All tournament officials to wear uniforms made by recycled materials and/or meet carbon neutral manufacturing status.

Please support Golf Refugees in our efforts to persuade the governing bodies of tournament golf to include eco golf rules.
