Sustainability Awards for Golf at The Grove

17 February 2022 / Golf /

We’re delighted to share that we have been awarded GEO Certified® status for our commitment and efforts to achieve a sustainable golf course operation. Plus, just weeks after being certified, we were awarded Environmental Golf Course of the Year at the Golf Environment Awards 2022.

What is GEO Certification?

GEO Certification is assured by the GEO Foundation for Sustainable Golf – the not-for-profit organisation that is dedicated to delivering programmes that help people on the ground to evaluate, improve and credibly communicate their sustainability work. GEO Certified is also recognised by the ISEAL Alliance, a group of the world’s foremost credible certification systems including Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance, Forest Stewardship Council, Marine Stewardship Council and many others.

What does this mean for The Grove?

This certification is a symbol of a great golf environment and our achievement of this at The Grove reflects the fact that we have met a credible standard in the areas of nature, resources, climate and community, and that we are committed to continual improvement.

We’re so thrilled to have attained this mark of sustainability and have to thank our Golf Course and Estate Manager, Phillip Chiverton, our Head Greenkeeper, Sam Reid, and our Head Gardener, Natasha Geldenhuys, who led the certification process.

Achieving this international recognition just goes to show the truly exceptional team effort that goes into the many practical, social and environmental initiatives that are widespread across our golf operation and beyond.
