Encouraged by the good results obtained with the study on warm season grasses, in 2010 the Golf della Montecchia converted the turf of tees and fairways from cool season grasses to Bermuda. The works were spread over three years: 2010 on the 9 holes of the White course, 2011 on the 9 holes of the Red course and 2012 on the 9 holes of the Yellow course.
The advantages of this operation are immediately noticeable for aesthetic, for playability and above all for the environment. Water consumption was reduced by 60%, nutritional inputs were reduced by up to 70% and the use of pesticed herbicides was reduced by 80% (with a forecast of zeroing) and the use of fungicides and insecticides was stopped .
In light of these results, at the end of June 2012 the second "INV Environmental Recognition" in the 'Water' category was awarded to the Golf della Montecchia.
In 2021, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the birth of Golf della Montecchia, a book was written which, in addition to telling the history of the club, also describes how it has become part of the territory and landscape.
Golf Environment Organization (G.E.O.) is a non-profit and non-governmental organization whose purpose is to promote sustainability in golf through an Environmental Certification process that allows for the achievement of a "GEO Certified ™ ecolabel".
In April 2013, the environmental policy of Golf della Montecchia, supported and encouraged also by the initiatives of the "Impegnati nel Verde" project, was awarded the “G.E.O. CertifiedTM Ecolabel " following a commitment to defense and support of the environment started in 1997.
Thanks to the close collaboration between the US Kids Foundation, G.E.O. (Golf Environment Organisation) and the three PlayGolf54 clubs of the Golf della Montecchia Golf, the Golf Frassanelle and the Galzignano Terme Spa & Golf Resort, the 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 editions of the US Kids Venice Open tournament were conducted in full compliance with environmental sustainability. Starting from 2018 and in the following years (2019, 2020) the US Kids Venice Open is officially recognized as a "GEO Certified" tournament, becoming the first amateur event, moreover dedicated to Juniors, to have achieved this result.
During the IGTM International Golf Travel Market, Golf della Montecchia received the I.A.G.T.O. Sustainability Awards 2018 - Community Value. It is an award born from the partnership between the I.A.G.T.O. (International Association of Golf Tour Operators) and the non-profit foundation G.E.O.
