Wildbiene sitzt auf einer orangefarbenen Blüte

Premiere for the Southern German Bee Week

The countdown is on: The registration for the South German Bee Week runs until 20.04.2023.

A week dedicated to the bee: Under the motto “Just bee there“, the Bavarian and Baden-Württemberg Golf Associations are organizing the Southern German Bee Week for the third time to benefit bees and biodiversity projects in the golf clubs of the two associations.

While the time frame is set with the week of May 15-21, golf facilities have a free hand in designing the project. Individual tournaments, game days, women’s afternoons or youth rounds can be carried out as you wish under the motto “Just bee there”. On the one hand, this is about collecting donations for the club’s own bee and species protection projects, but on the other hand, attention should be drawn to the topic both within the club and in the general public.

Registration until April 20

The golf courses are supported in many ways by the two golf associations: Tee gifts will be provided if registration is received by April 20. Information material for the participants is also available. In addition, the South German Bee Week is supported by the media and communicated via both print and social media. The hashtag #justbeethere is will be promoted.

In Bavaria as well as in Bavaria Württemberg, the topic of biodiversity on the golf course now occupies a large area and has led to cooperation between the two golf associations and the respective state ministries for the environment. In Bavaria, the BGV is a member of the “Flower Pact Bavaria“, in Baden-Württemberg the pilot project ” Habitat Golf Course ” was started in 2020, which is also dedicated to promoting biodiversity in golf.
