Kenilworth: Course Open.
Balancing the needs of golfers and those of wild life is a key objective in the Club’s Conservation Policy and this is reflected in the way the course is managed on a day to day basis.
Whilst clearing ditches, hedging, mowing and tree clearing may appear to be pretty unfriendly to wild-life they are important course management activities that are carefully timed to cause minimum disturbance to wild life. In 2013 the Club created seventeen “set aside” areas on the course that for the most part will remain undisturbed and will therefore provide protection and food sources for wild life. Details of “set aside areas” are incorporated into the Conservation Policy.
Our Golfer's Guides are a collection of guides produced by members with the aim of informing and creating interest in the wide range of wild life that we have on the course. The authors hope the guides will help to make even the worst round of golf a little more interesting and pleasurable.
Nature and Wild life , produced by John Butler is a hole by hole guide to the wild life that has been seen on the course.
Wild Flowers, produced by Barbara Everett is a collection of 120 photographs of wild flowers photographed on the course in 2013.
Flying Insects , produced by Barbara and Mike Everett is a collection of stunning photographs of insects and butterflies all seen while Mike and Barbara were collecting wild flower photos.
A Golfer's Guide to Trees produced by Mike Hastings provides a pictorial account of the trees that golfers will either see or perhaps come into contact with during a round of golf at Kenilworth Golf Club.
