St Andrews Links earns GEO Re-Certification

St Andrews Links, the Home of Golf, has again earned the prestigious GEO Certified® ecolabel in recognition of its long-term sustainability commitment and achievements.

St Andrews Links Trust, which manages the seven courses including the Old Course, at Europe’s biggest golf complex was the first Open venue to achieve the certification in 2011 with the re-certification coming as the Links prepares to host the 2015 Open Championship in July. The Links has operated a sustainability programme for many years with GEO’s three-yearly re-certification process highlighting the high standards for sustainable management of links turf based on traditional practices as well as the strength of the interrelationship between the courses and the town. In the re-certification reports of the Links and the Castle Course, 3rd party verifier Mike Wood stated that both had demonstrated significant improvements in standards over the previous three years. The independent verification describes the appointment by the Links of full-time Environmental Officer James Hutchinson in 2014 as a “significant pioneering step” to raise the level of commitment to develop and implement environmental management work, and increase the public profile of sustainability issues in the work of the Links.
