From 2018 Golf Les Iles has identified some large areas of rough, along the walkways, in the woods and around the lakes to be left uncultivated and favor the natural flowers. This strategy has made it possible to reduce maintenance costs, reduce noise pollution, increase the fun of players, protect pollinators and in particular bees. Greenkeepers and golfers take immense pride in their club doing something positive for the environment: this generates a good reputation for the club and helps attract new players. This operation demonstrates golf clubs can be managed for both high quality playing conditions and environmental benefit. The Golf Les Iles wishes to enrich the experience of playing golf with an interest in the landscape and environmental protection.
