Looking after our Environment

Harrogate Golf Club has a passionate commitment to nature conservation and managing our beautiful landscape

Our wonderful green space offers a bountiful variety of wildlife and teems with copious and varied species of flora, endowing a sanctuary that enriches the well-being of members and visitors alike.

450 year-old English oaks

We have wonderful mature, native coniferous and deciduous trees trees lining our lush fairways, including 450 year-old English oaks a vestige of the royal hunting Forest of Knaresborough.

A rich abundance of wildflowers

Throughout the year, wildflowers attract a great variety of bees, butterflies and pollinating insects. Bughotels leftover from tree felling give refuge to a wide variety of insects. Small ponds around the course take advantage of our natural springs and drainage water.

In 2023 our commitment to eco-friendly practices and protecting and enhancing our wonderful course was recognized with a Silver Gilt medal at the prestigious Yorkshire In Bloom Awards.
