The Register is a record of Members that have successfully completed the EIGCA’s Raising the Standard of Sustainable Golf Course Development programme (RSSGCD) which recognises a Members understanding and commitment to applying sustainable design and construction practices.
As part of the course, participants must present a case study of an actual project which employs a multitude of sustainable initiatives. The golf course project that Christoph highlighted was of the redevelopment of Öschberghof Golf Club which was founded in 1974 by the co-founder of the ALDI-Group. Städler Golf Courses led the reconfiguration of one of the golf courses, the construction of a new 9 holes golf course and the upgrading of the 18 hole ‘Old Course’ and practice facilities. The redevelopment incorporated numerous sustainable initiatives including the construction of new wildlife habitats, water collection and management systems, intelligent use of resources and improving community access and activities within the site.
