TPC Kuala Lumpur Environment Day


Come over and join us for a Golf Course Tour

Kuala Lumpur, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 – Have you ever wondered what TPC Kuala Lumpur Golf Course team does to ensure that the course condition is consistently immaculate and not to mention – environment-friendly?

TPC Kuala Lumpur (TPCKL) will be conducting a three-day Environment Day programme starting Monday, 19 March 2018 at 9.00am, on Tuesday 20 March 2018 at 5.00pm and Saturday, 24 March 2018 at 8.30pm.

“TPC Kuala Lumpur has always been a great support of environment-friendly programmes including our on-going plastic-free and energy-saving campaigns. We have a commitment towards the environment and value the opportunity to enhance our natural areas and wildlife habitat on golf courses, improving efficiency, and minimize potentially harmful impact on the environment,” said Steven Thielke, TPC Kuala Lumpur’s Chief Executive Officer.

The public are invited for the  East Course Tour on Tuesday, 20 March 2018 at 5.00pm and the Earth Hour campaign on Saturday, 24 March 2018 at 8.30pm at the Golfer’s Terrace. TPCKL’s Head of Agronomy Mohd Nizam Othman, CGCS will be sharing interesting facts of nature and wildlife with participants. For participation of Walk on the Course, please Whatsapp 019 263 6548. Limited slots are available to registered participants; so, hurry!

“We are very happy to educate golfers and the public about the nature of the game. Some of the topics include providing the needed wildlife sanctuaries, supporting plants and wildlife native to the area, chemical reduction usage on the golf course and the benefits of wood chipping,” Nizam said.

Within TPC Kuala Lumpur, there is a total of 54 bird species including Little Grebe, White-Throated Kingfisher, Common Iora, Black Napped Oriole, Yellow Vented Bulbul, Zebra Dove, Crested Goshhawk and many more at various locations.

Golf courses have offered numerous opportunities to not only provide pleasant places to play golf, but also to protect the plants and water which support a wildlife habitat. This will also protect the environment for future generations.

In addition, the Earth Hour at the Golfer’s Terrace is intended to show the Club’s support for global warming awareness. TPC Kuala Lumpur will be switching off most lights for an hour as a part of our contribution to the environment.

Native ecosystem resilience has drawn interest among nature-loving Malaysians and much is being done to preserve native species in the face of the need for economic development.

As such, various initiatives and policy have been formed in past years. One of these is the National Policy on Biodiversity 2016‑2025. Furthermore, under the United Nations through the International Union for the Conservation of Nature or IUCN, a global list of plants and animals etc. was created to provide focus on species, which need our attention to avoid further extinctions. The IUCN Red List for Trees includes several hundred trees that are native to Southeast Asia (including Malaysia), many of which are rainforest trees. These are classified into nine groups; Extinct, Extinct in the Wild, Critically Endangered, Endangered, Vulnerable, Near Threatened, Least Concern and Data Deficient. Tree conservation also supports the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals.

On Monday, 19 March 2018, TPCKL will be focusing on planting IUCN Red List Tree as a part of its landscape. A total of 15 Hopea Odorata plants will be planted. This native plant species falls under the IUCN Red List which is facing the risk of extinction. Thus, the planting of this species would contribute in saving the tree species plus enrich the nature and wildlife at TPC Kuala Lumpur.

The expected outcome of this three-day Environment Day is to improve the overall environmental awareness. This will ensure and motivate the team, members and guests at TPC Kuala Lumpur to enhance wildlife habitat and protect our natural resources.
