Native saltmarsh plants to protect Royal Dornoch Golf Club

maandag 16 april 2018

To protect the course from further erosion and flooding, Royal Dornoch Golf Club in Scotland is planning to plant hundreds of greenhouse-grown native saltmarsh plants.

The plants are expected to restore the natural defences of the coastline.

Over the next three years Royal Dornoch will be putting GBP 10,000 per year into a project that aims at restoring areas of saltmarsh along the coast. The project is led by Dr. Clare Maynard of St Andrews University.

Each plug will measure around five centimetres in diameter and will be supported by bio-rolls filled with coir.

Earlier this year Britain’s Climate Coalition, a group of 130 organisations that study the consequences of climate change, warned that wetter winters and coastal erosion linked to climate change would threaten the future of golf.
