In May 2011, Montecchia Golf Club became a member of the G.E.O.– Golf Environment Organisation - http://www.golfenvironment.org/, an international non-profit making and independent organisation, with the aim of achieving environmental certification.
Communication concerning environmental issues was improved by creating a "Golf and Environment" section on its website and placing a bulletin board dedicated to these in the clubhouse.
In addition, Montecchia Golf Club decided to achieve Environmental Recognition "Committed to Green" in the "Water" category.
In September, at the 16th Italian Ornithology Conference, the results of the research project entitled "Species to be preserved that are present on several Italian golf courses" were presented, which had been started the previous year by La Sapienza University of Rome and Società Cooperativa Darwin in collaboration with 15 golf clubs, including the Montecchia Golf Club (To view the complete text on the research, click here).
On the 9 holes of the red run, the turf of the tees and fairways was converted to Bermuda grass
