From high profile sporting events to community clubs around the world, golf brings people and nature together. Every venue and tournament has the opportunity to deliver resource efficiency, ecological richness and community value. Inspiring and engaging a wide audience.

The European Tour Green Drive brings hosts, organizers and sponsors together to deliver meaningful real world results and generate local to global awareness.

The venue for a golf event can be managed year round to high sustainability standards; efficient resource use, community integration, and responsible land management.

More sustainable solutions for energy, transport, waste and temporary structures, and the procurement of products and services are good for business and the environment.

The impacts of a sustainable event should not stop with the final putt. By supporting local projects and organizations tournaments can be valuable catalysts for wider action.Striving for a net positive impact wherever we go
