Golf is a significant global sport played on diverse areas of land within both urbanised and rural landscapes. Golf course managers are in essence custodians of this land and therefore have a responsibility to manage these facilities for both the game of golf and the environment. Golf courses offer wide ranging economic, social and environmental opportunities when managed appropriately but face many challenges in the 21st century if they are to survive in a highly competitive social and recreational market place. Competing forms of leisure, economic factors and other constraints continue to impact on golf globally. Course managers have to be mindful of these factors, which directly impact on the resources needed to sustain surfaces and meet customer expectations.

This part-time MA Sustainable Golf Course Management, awarded from the University of Central Lancashire, is an innovative course which encompasses a multidisciplinary approach to contemporary golf course management.
