Ecology, Environments, News / 15th November 2016

After a year filled with new ideas for nature conservation, environmental innovations and chemical legislation changes, STRI is delighted to announce the finalists for the 2017 Golf Environment Awards.

The Golf Environment Awards recognise golf clubs, and individuals, that strive to undertake environmental best practice in all areas, and honour those who go above and beyond.

Set up 20 years ago, the Golf Environment Awards are highly regarded in the industry and can indeed be life changing.

This year’s awards and finalists are:


Environmental Golf Course of the Year

Greetham Valley Golf

Whitley Bay Golf Club

The Carrick on Loch Lomond

Carnoustie Golf Links


Conservation Greenkeeper of the Year

Steve Thompson – John O’Gaunt Golf Club

Eddie Ainsworth – Avro Golf Club

Neil Sherman – Ipswich Golf Club

Phil Stain – Notts Golf Club


Outstanding Environmental Project of the Year

Mid-Herts Golf Club

Frilford Heath Golf Club

Irvine Golf Club

Stoneham Golf Club


The winners will be announced at the Golf Environment Awards Ceremony on Wednesday 18th January 2017, during BTME in Harrogate.

STRI would like to thank all the golf clubs that entered but didn’t make the final shortlist. Judging was very tight and we hope that you will enter again next year.

A huge thank you also goes to the sponsors who continue to support and promote the awards year-on-year, without them the awards simply would not be possible.
