Ecology and Sustainability

Through BIGGA's Ecology and Sustainability expert, James Hutchinson, we can assist all members and their golf clubs with environmental, ecological, woodland and grassland management reports, walk and talk member afternoons or provide valuable advice and guidance on rare or protected species prior to golf course development.

BIGGA can help you with:

  • Undertaking presentations on ecology, environmental management and golf club member walk and talks
  • Developing woodland, ecological, grassland, wildflower and general flora/fauna management plans
  • Undertaking education afternoons with individual and/or groups of greenkeepers

 James has visited over 140 individual golf courses to offer assistance and guidance where environmental matters are concerned.

Upwards of 20 plans developed to date

Greenkeeping is challenging and rewarding in equal measure. It brings together the management of land, resources and customer expectations to present high quality playing surfaces on great golf courses that contribute to the protection of our natural and cultural heritage.

Greenkeepers make decisions that are significant to the sustainability performance of the industry, and to a large degree determine golf’s reputation as a responsible steward. Click Sustainable Golf for more information.
