greener golf index

The measure of a golf facility’s economic, environmental, community, and player impact. Use this score to share the narrative of the positive efforts of your golf facility. Data, modeling, and industry trend indexes are utilized to objectively measure the impact of your golf facility.

Measuring and sharing a golf course’s impact is a significant challenge. What is green washing or creative marketing and what are the actual values generated by the golf facility? How do we calculate and share the actual impact narrative with golfers and non-golfers to demonstrate the value of a golf facility to its community, its users, and its ecosystem? The answer is the Greener Golf Index.
