Carnoustie Golf Links has had its prestigious environmental accreditation renewed by the Golf Environmental Organisation.

The GEO certification is the symbol of a great golfing environment. Awarded to Carnoustie Golf Links Management Committee in 2013, it was renewed this year.

GEO is a sustainability group founded to support the golfing industry, to make a positive ecological and environmental impact on both players and nature. Its vision is to place social and environmental issues at the roots of the game; to prove that golf is good for nature and communities.

A spokesperson for the Links said: “CGLMC is rightly proud to have the GEO re- verification and is delighted that this national accolade recognises the outstanding work of the links superintendent and all his greenkeeping staff in terms of ecology and environment.”
