Why Should Golf Courses Become Certified Through Audubon International?

We stopped by the Audubon International booth at the GCSAA Conference in Phoenix, Ariz. and spoke with Frank LaVardera, Director of Environmental Programs for Golf.

The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf is an award winning education and certification program that helps golf courses protect our environment and preserve the natural heritage of the game of golf. By helping people enhance the valuable natural areas and wildlife habitats that golf courses provide, improve efficiency, and minimize potentially harmful impacts of golf course operations, the program serves an important environmental role worldwide.

Audubon International has developed Standard Environmental Management Practices that are generally applicable to all golf courses. These standards form the basis for ACSP for Golf certification guidelines.
