Maintaining the Environment
It is the objective of Federal Golf Club to maintain its property in a manner that provides members, visitors and adjacent properties with a continuing vision of a golf course set in a bush land retreat in the heart of the national capital. The flora and fauna are amongst Federal’s most significant assets. Federal Golf Club occupies an area of 85 hectares at Red Hill. Construction of the golf course began in 1947.
Today Federal has a wide variety of native trees and shrubs in line with an ongoing program aimed at presenting a quality golf course also noted for its standard of botanic excellence. Federal Golf Club is committed to maintaining and nurturing this environment in a sustainable manner, through adoption and implementation of ethical and ecologically sound policies and work practices.
All reasonable and practical effort will be made to minimise risk or harm to the environment, members, staff, the public and surrounding properties. Federal Golf Club takes into account relevant legislation including the ACT Integrated Nature Conservation Plan, the Canberra Nature Park Management Plan, the Environment ACT’ Vertebrate Pest Management Strategy, the ACT Weeds Strategy and laws relating to water use in the ACT.
