CLUB ROOTS OUT UNWELCOME GUESTS

St Enodoc Golf Club in north Cornwall has embarked on a five-year ecological management plan to return both its championship Church Course and Holywell Course back to a biodiverse landscape

St Enodoc Golf Club in north Cornwall has embarked on a five-year ecological management plan to return both its championship Church Course and Holywell Course back to a biodiverse landscape.

The aim is to benefit both nature and the game of golf, and better reflect the terrain on which the course was originally established over 100 years ago.

“By undertaking this ecological plan, the club is committed to ripping out the scrub plant species such as ivy, buckthorn and gorse, and even trees, that have encroached on the land where the two courses are set in order to allow it to return to its original state,” explained Simon Greatorex, the general manager of St Enodoc.

As part of the course makeover, St Enodoc has taken advice from agronomist and golf course advisor Chris Haspell.

“Maintaining good quality surfaces throughout the course is crucial to the success of any golf course and, coupled with the ecology plan, we can keep the course fun and engaging whilst improving the environmental responsibilities for the members and guests in the community,” said Haspell.
