Here are some renowned golf courses around the world that are embracing a greener future
TROPICANA GOLF & COUNTRY RESORT (“TGCR”), MALAYSIA
The beauty of TGCR is that its greenery has a positive impact on the environment while providing golfers with a breathtaking and natural landscape. The golf course takes pride in many other ways it contributes to environmental preservation. For example, a pond on the course is designed to attract dragonflies and serve as a mosquito biocontrol. Unlike chemical control, it is an eco-friendly solution to eliminate mosquitoes. Furthermore, the presence of dragonflies indicates that the water is clean and that the oxygen levels are stable. At 625 acres, TGCR also supports a diverse plant life that benefits the environment by absorbing and filtering rain, providing wildlife habitat, and reducing noise pollution. It’s no surprise that some migratory bird species that travel long distances from Siberia to Indonesia can be found here!
