Monina driving Glenelg’s sustainability efforts
Glenelg Golf Club in South Australia is trying to do things differently.
From installing a new irrigation system that will help save up to 30% water usage to producing its own honey, the Adelaide venue is on a mission to support sustainability, biodiversity and ecology.
Many of the initiatives are the work of Monina Gilbey, the club’s Biodiversity Manager who has been recognised with recent awards including the Clubs SA Employee of the Year and the Claude Crockford Environment and Sustainability Award, co-winning with Glenelg’s Course Superintendent, Tim Warren.
