What We Have Done So Far

Hoebridge Café Bar and Grill, is an exciting eating destination on the outskirts of Woking and is open to everyone, seven days a week. With fresh, modern surroundings, a great choice of delicious meals and snacks, plus a warm and inviting welcome we’re sure you will enjoy your experience. You don’t have to be a golfer to eat with us – everyone is welcome.

Our Course & Natural Environment

Our courses fall within an Area of Outstanding Beauty and in June 2014 a Phase 1 Habitat Survey was conducted and mapped the various habitats identified across the site. The survey emphasized the importance of the site due to its location and proximity to the Berks Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust (BB&O WT) located to the North West of the course.

An Arboricultural Survey identified specimen trees and highlighted a wider site management plan to encourage native broad leaf species to blur the lines between course and the wider landscape. We are continuing to engage with local stakeholders regarding the management of our land.

Energy

Ultimately our goal is to be taking in more energy than we are emitting. Which we will calculate through our measurement and calculations of scopes 1 and 2 detailed below. In the short term we are reviewing the potential for the installation of solar PV and the transition to a Certified Green Gas supply to further reduce consumption and emissions.

Water

As we experience hotter, drier summers, to have the ability to irrigate our courses through sustainable sources and reduce the demands on water companies when water is needed elsewhere is extremely important to us.

Following a water resilience review started 10 years ago, water availability for turf irrigation was highlighted as a risk to our future operations. To mitigate the risk we have implemented a programme to source sustainable water and create onsite storage to avoid demand conflict with water suppliers and our community especially in times of drought.

£350,000

In 2021 we invested £350,000 to build this 12,000 meter cubed reservoir to enable us to irrigate our courses through renewable sources.
