GEO Certification

Golf Environmental Organisation (GEO) Certification Re-Awarded to CGL


Following on from verification in 2013 and 2016, Carnoustie Golf Links has once again been re-awarded Golf Environmental Organisation accreditation in 2019. This prestigious accolade is a symbol of a great golfing environmental stewardship, by way of fostering nature, conserving resources and supporting communities.

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.

The verification process confirms that Carnoustie Golf Links satisfies all the GEO certification criteria. The comprehensive GEO On Course report provides solid evidence of the continued commitment by CGL to maintain wider sustainability issues, proving once more we are meeting the stringent certification standard and renewal priorities. 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 green-keeping staff in terms of ecology and environment.
