Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

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.”
