Carnoustie links lands green award
THE Claret Jug is coming to Carnoustie later this year for the 147th Open, but before then, the golf course itself has been awarded a prize.
Carnoustie Golf Links has been named Environmental Golf Course of the Year 2018 at the Golf Environmental Awards, in a ceremony hosted by STRI Group and The R&A.
The award is given to golf clubs that demonstrate expert efficiency in nature conservation management, turfgrass management, waste management and water management.
Craig Boath, championship course head greenkeeper, said: “We are thrilled to receive this award. It means a lot to be recognised for the great care we take to protect and enhance our natural habitat.”
