GEO Certification

OnCourse Program 

The Golf de Lavaux has started the first stage of GEO Fundation certification under the impetus of Swiss Golf for all clubs in Switzerland. 

The OnCourse®-Switzerland tool also ensures that clubs have permanent access to the latest legal standards for golf courses (Water Protection Ordinance, Ordinance on Risk Reduction related to the Use of Particularly Hazardous Substances, Preparations and Objects).

OnCourse® was developed by the GEO Foundation in close cooperation with the R&A, Swiss Golf and other golf associations in our neighbouring countries. The "GEO - Swiss Golf Agreement" was signed on 12 April 2019 by Swiss Golf and the GEO Foundation with the aim that by 2027 all golf clubs/courses in Switzerland will be certified or at least made aware of the topic of sustainability.
