Solutions to Climate Change Issues Facing Golf

London, England: On the eve of COP 27, the United Nations’ Climate Change Conference, Syngenta Golf has published a new feature looking at solutions to help golf courses become more climate resilient.

Entitled, How to make golf courses more sustainable and climate resilient, the report takes a deep dive into golf, sustainability and climate resilience to look at solutions and case studies globally, including:

  • Drought-resistant grass being used on golf courses
  • Water conservation, diversion and filtration 
  • Community action to combat rising sea levels
  • The measurement of carbon sequestration to define individual course’s ‘Carbon Par’

Mark Birchmore, Syngenta Global Head of Marketing, Turf and Landscape, who commissioned the feature, said: “Climate change poses fundamental challenges to golf, both in terms of producing the playing conditions customers demand in order to have a sustainable business, and also adapting to change in both the environment and societal expectations.

“Our work with golf course superintendents and greenkeepers around the world provides us with a unique perspective on this challenge, whilst recognising innovation could come from a broad range of sources both within and outside the industry. 

“This feature looks at the challenges and solutions, to help all golf course businesses think about how they respond and plan for climate change.”

Syngenta is an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
