Environmental Golf Solutions Australia (EGSA) aims to provide sustainability through experience, research, education and funding assistance for golf courses all for the good of the game. 

 

In 2013  EGSA was established by Kate, where her passion for the environment and extensive knowledge on golf courses led to the development of EGSA. Kate’s  desire is to provide specialized advice and services to golf courses looking to enhance their environmental management systems.

 

Kate has over 16 years of practical and academic experience in the golf course and conservation industries  working on several highly ranked  Australian golf courses. Her career began  with an apprenticeship in Turf management   where she soon discovered  her passion for indigenous vegetation communities. After completing her apprenticeship Kate  developed her knowledge  of indigenous flora within the conservation industry as a Natural Reserves Ranger for a local Melbourne Metropolitan Council.
