The natural surroundings of our golf courses are what make the golfing experience in Scotland so special. From coastal links and parkland courses, woodland and heathland, wetland and dune habitats, our golf courses support many habitats and species and protect Scotland’s natural heritage.
All golf courses have something to offer in terms of biodiversity. There are numerous ways a club can enhance their natural habitats and contribute to wildlife conservation. Many of which incur very little or no financial cost and some can even save the club money in the long run.
