Prepare golf for the future

The golf industry is dedicated to continually improving the construction and management of responsible and economically-viable golf courses, which provide significant value to the environment.


The game’s leading organizations endorse the International Golf Federation’s “Statement on Sustainability” to employ environmental best practices.

The goal is for course managers and developers to continuously improve water conservation, water quality protection, energy savings and pollution reduction. Highlights:

  • Provide ecological and economic benefits to local communities.
  • Protect habitat for wildlife and plant species.
  • Use natural resources efficiently.
  • Respect land adjacent to golf properties.
  • Support ongoing scientific research of eco-friendly solutions.
