Jonathan Smith, CEO of the Golf Environment Organization (GEO) gives Hong Kong’s Jockey Club Kau Sai Chau Public Golf Course high marks for its education programs and work with the community.

All golf course employees are trained in pesticide disposal, efficient water management, habitat maintenance, waste reduction, energy use, and environmental planning. In addition, the club issues a regular environment newsletter and posts environmental education materials throughout the course that identify flora and fauna—including eagles, herons, boars, civet, and porcupines—that can be found on the property.

The club’s work with the community recently resulted in partnerships to fund and run a fleet of solar-powered golf carts and hybrid ferries to the 54-hole, 618-acre public course.
