Safety for your Links Golf Course

The sport of golf faces an unexpected threat. Coastal erosion along the coastline as a result of climate change, rising water levels and storm surges threatens golf courses. Venerable, centuries-old golf course icons, which were created in harmony with nature, are affected. The beaches and cliffs along the water are not resistant enough to the force of the water to stop the progressive erosion.

Coastal protection is very important for the safety of the business model “golf course”. Without protection, erosion can destroy your golf course.

NAUE has the solution and offers you the know-how to protect your Links Golf Course.
