Following our first Nature Links meeting of Sussex golf clubs at Lewes Golf Club last September, TSF has held a follow up seminar in partnership with the South Downs National Park, hosted by Pyecombe Golf Club.  Representatives from 14 clubs attended to discuss practical steps they are taking to create habitat, share learning and look at best practice.

Clubs from across Sussex attended the gathering which was also an opportunity to learn more about the 100 mile Weald to Waves wildlife corridor through Sussex. Attendees were briefed on support available to clubs wanting to take steps for nature, including expert advice and finance. Butterfly specialist and author Neil Hulme gave a talk on species that can be found at Pyecombe, which has won awards for its nature restoration work.   Participants were also treated to a guided tour of the course to see the nature restoration in person.

Representatives from Golf England, the Sussex County Golf Union, Natural England, the South Downs National Park, RSPB, Buglife and Weald to Waves attended the event to lend their support to the initiative.

The Southwood Foundation is delighted to be working in partnership with these clubs and organisations to demonstrate and develop the very real difference golf is making for nature.
