Handbook - Golf clubs as frontrunners
The handbook "Golf clubs as frontrunners for sustainable development in local landscapes" is a step-by-step workbook on how to map values, functions and activities and engage key partners in multifunctional projects.

Golf clubs as landscape players
Nordic golf clubs have a fantastic opportunity to make substantial contributions to the "2030 Agenda" by developing the concept of multi-functional golf facilities, applying a landscape perspective and establish partnership with other landscape actors. This is described in the final report of the project "Golf clubs as landscape players".

Film about outdoor teaching
How can the golf course become a resource for outdoor learning in schools? Motala Golf Club and Smedsby School in Motala are involved in the project, which examines if and how parts of the golf course can be used as a classroom for teaching in all school subjects in grades 1–6. The film is supported by the Swedish Golf Federation and is in Swedish.
