Sustainability is a journey, and not one that is completed over night, it takes commitment, but it gives real, lasting, benefits to clubs, members communities and of course the environment.
The first step on the journey is to find out where you are already. Some clubs might already be well down the sustainability journey, without even realising, while others will be starting from scratch. The important thing to remember is we’re all different, and a we can all improve.
Next we need to know where we want to go, what are our aims and targets, where should we focus our efforts now, what should we do, how do we know if its worked and what are the benefits.
Once we know where we are, where we want to get to and how to get there – we need to shout about it, let everyone know we’re trying, that we are committed to making a positive difference and how we’re going to do it. Lets celebrate milestones and achievements and share with each other so we can all benefit from a more sustainable image and reality for golf.
