Abbey Hill Golf Centre in Milton Keynes has achieved GEO Certified® status for another three years.

GEO, the Golf Environment Organisation, provides a credible framework for golf clubs to be awarded certified status for demonstrating leadership in sustainable and ecological measures as well as operating with sound business practice and making a difference in the community.

General manager, Russell Heady, said: “We’re thrilled with this achievement, maintaining our ongoing GEO certification is a very important part of our environmental strategy so I’d like to congratulate the whole team here at Abbey Hill and especially the greenkeepers, who’ve done an outstanding job.

“This is just another step in our commitment to sustainability and we will continue to adapt in finding new ways to operate more efficiently all of the time.”

Tony Hanson, a GEO accredited independent verifier, commented in the report: “The management at Abbey Hill has continued the process of improving environmental management with diverse projects including habitat creation, wildflower meadows, open water ecology management and plans for a new reservoir to improve water resilience. The enthusiasm shown leaves me with confidence that they will continue their environmental journey with a determination to identify new and innovative projects.”
