What is Golf Course 2030?

Golf Course 2030 (GC2030) is our way of helping golf to manage the impact of climate change, consider the use of resources and prepare for the effect future regulations could have on course conditioning.

Working with R&A Affiliates, industry bodies, academic and research institutes around the world we aim to identify key sustainability issues and explore opportunities for innovation and practical solutions for the golf industry to adopt. For more information on Golf Course 2030, contact The R&A at
