BGL Golf has become the world’s first multi-site operator to achieve the international sustainability award, GEO Certified, at each of its venues. A wide-ranging variety of innovative community engagement, nature enhancement and protection and resource efficiency measures in place across BGL’s ten courses are recognised by this prestigious award.
GEO Certified, golf’s international mark of sustainability, is administered and assured by the not-for-profit Golf Environment Organization (GEO) and independently assessed. GEO Certified recognises golf businesses that demonstrate a commitment to providing more and more value to people and nature at the facilities they manage.
Commenting BGL chief executive Colin Mayes said, “We have been delighted by the passion, commitment and innovation shown by the staff at each of our venues, and by the value it has brought to our business. We won’t be resting here, we will continue to move forward and to bring even more value to our businesses and to the environments and communities within and around each facility.”
