Small club size? Small financial investment? Small project? Often the best things come in small packages…

The Golf Environment Awards and Operation Pollinator are managed and administered by STRI and The R&A and each entry is independently judged, not on the scale of the project nor their financial investment, but on the golf club’s achievements.

Don’t be put off applying if your club currently has no affiliation with STRI, this is not required! Entry is easy, completely free and open to all golf clubs and courses across the UK, big or small, so get applying today – we’d love to hear from you!

You can enter by completing the Entry Form or alternatively, you can print our downloadable GEA Entry Form 2018 and send it in the post to Golf Environment Awards, STRI Group, St Ives Estate, Bingley, BD16 1AU.

If you require more information on how to apply please contact the STRI Environment and Ecology Team on 01274 565131 or email info@golfenvironmentawards.com
