Weed Killer

By Golfrefugees
New Malton Golf Club in Cambridge is the first all organic golf course, after claiming they have been chemical-free for over a year.
Co-owner, Paul Stevenson said "it is strange that golf clubs can spray poison on the green and then a golfer can walk straight on it – it doesn’t seem a sensible approach.

All of the Uk’s 1,800 golf clubs have a responsibility towards the health and safety of their members as well as the environment."

The greens are treated with a mix of citric acid and sugar instead of weed killer.

And going ‘green’ has had a positive effect on more than just the wildlife, costs have reduced by £50,000 is just one year.
