Evergreen Golf Course Recognized for Environmental Excellence
Evergreen Golf Course has achieved designation as a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary" through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses. Phil Petrone, Golf Course Superintendent, completed the effort to obtain sanctuary designation on the property. Evergreen Golf Course is now one of over 900 courses in the world to hold the title of Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.
"Evergreen Golf Course has shown a strong commitment to its environmental program. They are to be commended for their efforts to provide a sanctuary for wildlife on the golf course property," said Christine Kane, CEO at Audubon International.
"To reach certification, a course must demonstrate that they are maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas," explained Kane. These categories include: Environmental Planning, Wildlife & Habitat Management, Outreach and Education, Chemical Use Reduction and Safety, Water Conservation, and Water Quality Management. Evergreen Golf Course’s accomplishments include:
“While Evergreen Golf Course is a natural for being environmentally friendly, it is a rigorous process to become a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. We are proud of their achievement and look for more good things to come,” says Pam Smith, Denver Golf’s Director of Agronomy.
The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, endorsed by the United States Golf Association, provides information and guidance to help golf courses preserve and enhance wildlife habitat and protect natural resources. Golf courses from the United States, Africa, Australia, Canada, Central America, Europe, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia have achieved certification in the program.
Evergreen Golf Course is Denver’s mountain jewel. At 7,220 feet, this 18-hole executive course sits along Bear Creek. Rolling hills and fairways lined with pine trees make this an affordable mountain golf experience just a short drive from the city. Elk and other wildlife sightings are frequent on the course. After golf, players can enjoy delicious food and drinks on the patio at Keys On The Green Restaurant. Evergreen is the 7th Denver Course to be Audubon Certified.
Audubon International is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Troy, NY. In addition to golf courses, Audubon International also provides programs for businesses, schools, communities, and new developments with the purpose of delivering high-quality environmental education and facilitating the sustainable management of natural resources.
