Roehampton Club Wins Golf Environment Award

Roehampton Club wins a 2012 Golf Environment Award!

We are pleased to announce that Roehampton Club has won the "Water Management" category of the 2012 Golf Environment Awards. The prize was given for the reconstruction of the pond on the golf course's 11th hole. Before, during and after photographs of the project are include below.

The award scheme has over 200 golf club entrants each year and it is judged by Senior Ecologists working for The Sports Turf Research Institute (STRI) and the patron Professional Golfer Justin Rose. A five-year STRI Ecology Programme was set up byMarc Neweyand the Golf Committee in 2010, which we are well on course to complete, and this pond project was part of it.

John Lockyerand John Entwistlewere recently presented with the award at the annual awards ceremony receiving a carved oak plaque to commemorate the win. BobTaylor (STRI Senior Ecologist) said that "Roehampton Club has won the category for their successful conversion of the 11th pond from an overgrown site of little ecological value to one that offers an excellent new aquatic and general wildlife habitat."

The plaque can now be viewed in the clubhouse reception area, next to the main office door.John Lockyersaid "it is fantastic to receive such early recognition for our ecological development efforts on the course and grounds areas and we hope our members enjoy the newly refurbished pond."

Congratulations to John and the team for a job well done!
