Dubai Golf has teed off an eco-friendly campaign to eliminate 785,000 plastic bottles from the emirate’s fairways.

As part of the drive to eliminate single-use plastic bottles across its five golf courses, all members and visitors will receive a reusable aluminium water bottle courtesy of Dell Technologies.

Dubai Creek Golf Club, Emirates Golf Club and Jumeirah Golf Estates are all participating in the initiative which equates to more than 1.2 million ounces less of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere.

Christopher May, CEO, Dubai Golf, said: “With world-renowned courses playing host to international tournaments, we have a responsibility to set a precedent for sustainable practice within the golf industry. We will continue to implement initiatives that adhere to our mindful policies, and look forward to building a greener future.”

In March this year, Emirates Golf Club continued its move towards a sustainable future with the announcement that its 18-hole championship Faldo Course was the only course in the region to install LED light technology, enhancing energy savings by 60 percent.
