Cape Kidnappers Golf Course has won the PGG Wrightson Turf New Zealand Golf Course Superintendents Association Environment Award
Cape Kidnappers Golf Course in the Hawke's Bay, North Island, has won the inaugural PGG Wrightson Turf New Zealand Golf Course Superintendents Association Environment Award for its environmental management practices.
The award was presented to Course Superintendent Steve Marsden at the New Zealand Turf Conference and Trade Show 2011, in Hamilton.
Cape Kidnappers occupies the 33rd position in the Top 100 golf courses in the world, compiled by Golf Magazine.
Golfers planning to head to this North Island retreat should make sure that they have taken out a comprehensive
sports travel insurance policy.
Ryan Brandeburg, Director of Golf, said: "I think the most important conclusion to be drawn from both of these awards has very little to do with Cape Kidnappers in particular.
"That a single golf course can be so highly ranked, and also be so environmentally responsible, shows that quality and sustainability go together.
"They don't have to be mutually exclusive - which is something that professionals inside the golf business have long understood, but people outside of golf are beginning to realise more fully every day.
"We congratulate our course superintendent at Cape Kidnappers, Steve Marsden, for both awards. I suppose in all our minds, they go together."
