Recertifying as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary golf course
By: Josh Geppi, GM
upon us in full force. The heat and
humidity are on the rise so I am reminding all of our guests to make sure they
are well hydrated throughout their round. If anyone is feeling ill from the
heat to contact the proshop and someone will come to you immediately to assist
you in any way needed.
I wanted to
talk this month about our continued partnership with Audubon International and
our designation as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary golf course. We are
currently working towards our most current recertification and although some of
our guests may not notice the work we’re doing to improve Eisenhower
environmentally, we are constantly looking for ways to decrease pesticide
inputs, water usage and decrease mowing in out of the play areas.
In 2018 we
will embark on a renovation of the golf course that will include re-grassing of
at least 20 acres to more environmentally friendly Bermuda grass, reducing
inputs even more. If you have any questions about the renovation please stop by
the proshop for further details.
