Benchmarking

Would you like to know how much water, fertiliser and pesticides your local golf club use?

Over in Denmark, clubs are required by law to submit an annual green audit which also includes information on energy consumption and waste produced.


Just out of curiosity I visited the website for the R&A, who are the governing bodies of golf in the UK.


In 2009 they launched a benchmarking initiative, which is not about going down to your local park and spraying graffiti on the nearest bench, but a management tool to help golf course developers, owners perform ‘environmentally’ better.


Interesting to read that they are not accepting any new registrations for this service.


I wonder why? Have the R&A been swamped with requests or has it already gone down the toilet?
