A GOLF WITHIN THE DOMAINE DU LAC DE SAINT-CYR
The Golf du Haut-Poitou is one of the activities of the Domaine du Lac de Saint-Cyr, a natural break of 300 hectares: a lake, green spaces all around, walking or jogging routes, a golf course, a beach, a reserve ornithological…
The Golf team, for several years, in line with its values and those of the French Golf Federation, has been committed to the preservation of the environment, in particular in connection with the Golf Environment Charter. The Golf du Haut-Poitou thus favors sustainable maintenance practices, namely the implementation of various good practices for the maintenance of the golf course such as reasoning weeding practices, favoring mechanical operations, opting for differentiated management of meadows (with late mowing for certain areas), to apply rational water management. Golf thus contributes to the preservation of species, promoting biodiversity. Thanks to this, golfers have the pleasure of observing rare species on the course, such as the Purple Orchid (Orchis Purpurea) or the Fritillary Guinea fowl.
The role of the Golf is also to make golfers aware of management choices in favor of sustainable development. One of the great interests of the game of golf lies in a different practice according to the seasons of the year and the state of the course (I accept wild and spontaneous grass, possible small areas of a color other than green) .
For 2022, Golf du Haut-Poitou has registered with the French Golf Federation and the National Museum of Natural History to obtain a label: Golf for Biodiversity. Haut-Poitou is aiming for the Silver level. An inventory of the fauna and flora present on the site must be carried out in this context.
