GA Carbon Pricing Mechanism Study for golf clubs

Golf Australia, in cooperation with Golf Management Australia and the Australian Golf Course Superintendents Association, recently commissioned a study into the economic impacts of the incoming Carbon Pricng Mechanism on Australian golf clubs and the wider industry. This report is now available to download here As regular and often considerable consumers of electricity, petrol and diesel in daily operations, the carbon pricing mechanism has the potential to have a visible impact on golf clubs with their energy bills. The prospective modelling gives golf clubs approximate differences to their energy costs once the pricing mechanism is enacted. As one of the first sports to provide this information to its industry, Golf Australia is committed to assisting clubs with information for their current and future planning. Clubs with queries relating to the report are welcome to contact Golf Australia&aposs Head Office on +61 3 9626 5000.
