In today’s world, golf is often unjustly portrayed as being detrimental to the environment. In order to change this perception, we need to educate the public on all of the positive things that golf does to enhance the environment.
The NGCOA Canada is committed to ensuring that the environmentally friendly programs and initiatives undertaken by the golf industry are presented in a consistent and uniform manner. The goal of our Association is to promote and provide recognition of the golf industry for fostering the principles of sustainability, stewardship and the best environmental practices with the objective of illustrating that golf courses and their operations are environmental assets to the community.
The NGCOA Canada believes that we must continue to educate ourselves, in order to be able spread this message. As part of the NGCOA Canada commitment to provide assistance to its members, we have created this environmental section on our website. By creating this central starting point, our membership will have the ability to quickly access resources and expertise on environmental issues that we all face in our operations. The site contains our Environmental Position Statement, environmental resources, and a key contacts database broken down by chapter to allow the membership to access those individuals and associations who will be most familiar with any issues that affect their operations.
In the future we will add further features and resources to assist the membership in communicating the message of golf’s benefits to the environment so please check back regularly for updates.
