Scottish Open leads the way for sustainable golf

For many years the Scottish Open has been a leading event in the European Tour’s GreenDrive programme, by showing commitment to providing social and environmental value.

This year, the tournament hosted at Dundonald Links in Ayrshire, aims to take this a step further and become the first tournament in Europe to achieve the new voluntary sustainability standard for golf tournaments, the GEO Certified® Tournament eco-label. Throughout the Scottish Open spectators will be encouraged to use public transport, recycle as much as possible and take an extra moment to appreciate the local wildlife in and around Dundonald Links.
