Jorge Campillo and Rasmus Højgaard support Green Drive with Sotogrande beach clean

As part of the DP World Tour’s Green Drive, Jorge Campillo and Rasmus Højgaard took part in a beach clean ahead of this week's Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucia Masters.

For the third year running, the initiative backed by San Roque Council aims to engage and educate young people in local communities about plastic pollution and protecting local wildlife.

On Tuesday, home favourite Campillo and Denmark’s Højgaard were joined by 90 pupils and 7 teachers from the Sotogrande International School as all played their part in demonstrating an environmental commitment.

Since its inception, the DP World Tour’s Green for Golf initiative has become a benchmark in the world of sport as it continues to generate effective and successful initiatives.

Speaking up in support of caring for the planet, Højgaard said: “This is a great initiative. I love to see so many children helping to clean up the beach.

“Personally, I try to always leave the places where I go clean, that’s how I was brought up. When I was at school, we also went to clean the beach one day and it was great fun.”

Fellow 2023 DP World Tour winner Campillo said: “We must all do our best to improve our environment, and it’s important to make kids aware that keeping beaches clean is good for everyone.

“I believe that Spain is doing a good job in keeping beaches clean, but the more we all do our bit, the better.”

This week marks the ninth edition of the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucía Masters, which is being hosted at Real Club de Golf Sotogrande for the first time.

‘Golf for Good’ is the umbrella name for the European Tour group’s commitment to Driving Golf Further in an environmentally and socially sustainable way, ensuring we have a positive long-term impact on the courses, countries and the communities we visit.
