Auckland, New Zealand has a goal of becoming the ‘World’s most live-able city’ and the Auckland Council is looking at how golf can play a part in that. Currently, 13 Auckland golf courses operate on council-owned or managed land. A discussion document produced by local government highlights the existing (and potential) value that golf courses in the central city offer. Will Bowden, sports golf course turf consultant for SSDM, was involved in authoring this discussion document. Bowden presents this 60-minute webcast designed to review Auckland’s Golf Facilities Investment Plan, focusing on how golf courses can benefit communities environmentally and economically while contributing to the overall well-being of the local urban community (golfing and non-golfing). Join us to learn how you might communicate these same positive benefits to your neighbors and community.
