The colour poster is designed to hang in the clubhouse, to give members and players an indication of what they can look out for around the course.
Syngenta Turf & Landscape communications manager Karen Roberts said more than 200 greenkeepers and course managers have attended Operation Pollinator training courses over the summer:
"Those that have already signed up for the project and got going with establishing the pollen and nectar wildflower areas will be sent their posters. We would urge more clubs thinking about habitat creation to sign up now and make this a truly industry-wide initiative.
"Golfers at clubs involved with Operation Pollinator can take immense pride in where they play, and the knowledge they are making a real ecological difference for the bumblebee and other important pollinating insects."
"The Guide to Bees of UK and Ireland is a further tool to help players engage with what the greenkeeping team are doing and to help them get greater pleasure from their experience out on the course."
Involvement in Operation Pollinator has already generated positive local publicity for clubs across the length of the UK over recent weeks, from the Carnousite Golf Links in Scotland, to North Foreland Golf Club in Kent. Any club that has signed up for the project can use a range of resources and templates specifically created to help them communicate with members and to attract new players to the club.See www.greencast.co.uk Syngenta will be hosting an Operation Pollinator update meeting at BTME on 25 January 2012 at 3.30pm in the Queen’s Suite for all participating clubs and greenkeepers interested in getting involved with the project.
