Kabi Organic Golf Course
We report on some amazing stuff here, but this must be in the running for Project of the Week. And No, that title is not a trick. Here are 18 holes worth of organic certification by the Biological Farmers Association (BFA). Meaning it's free of "any synthetic fertilisers, pesticides and or any other chemicals that are traditional ones used on golf courses." What's more, the clubhouse restaurant lists a menu of organic beef, chicken, and herbs. Or feast upon oranges, lemons, limes, mandarins and grapefruits from the courses's organic orchard. And if you need to take a load off your hind, then the compost toilets await your deposit, so they can feed any liquid nutrient back to the courses's forests, via sand filters. Aside from the prolific bird life that enjoys the 120 acres of such forests (covering over a third of the property) there is also abundant wildlife, such as wallabies and kangaroos (see below), who "have the right of way on the course at all times." Not normally a big fan of golf, in the case of Kabi, I might just make an exception. To their knowledge, they are the only certified organic course in the southern hemisphere, and possibly the planet. Though, no doubt, one of our white ball bashing readers can hit us for four on that one. ::Kabi Golf
