Sustainable Golf at Chigwell

We recognise that our course and golf as a whole can play a valuable role in addressing some of the major concerns of our generation:

Nature - loss of biodiversity; fighting off invasive and alien species; protecting habitats; pollution prevention; enhancing air quality
Resources - maximising efficiency in the use of water, energy and materials, and transitioning to clean, renewable and recyclable sources
Community - improving health and wellbeing; supporting partners and good causes; delivering environmental, social and economic benefits, and healthy recreation for all
Climate - minimising carbon emissions and maximising sequestration value.

With this in mind, we have joined golf’s sustainability programme - OnCourse® in order to become a more sustainable, more popular and more efficient golf club.

As part of their commitment to sustainability, we have been sourcing renewable energy contracts for Chigwell for several years. Currently all their power comes from renewable electricity sources made up from a mixture of wind, solar, bioenergy & hydro.
