St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton, Fla., has received certification in water conservation from the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for golf courses (ACSP), an international program administered by Audubon Intl. designed to help landowners preserve and enhance the environmental quality of their property.
This most recent certification follows the environmental planning achievement earned in August. St. Andrews Country Club is seeking to earn certification in all six categories, all of which involve projects that enhance habitat for wildlife and preserve natural resources for the benefit of the local community.
George Kervern, director of golf course maintenance, was commended for his usage of a modern and flexible irrigation system in the southern Florida region where water resources are at a premium.
"Our participation in the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program is an example of our commitment to protecting and preserving the habitat and wildlife found around the club," said Craig D. Martin, chief operating officer and general manager of the country club. "We fully support Kervern and his team's efforts in obtaining all six certifications. It directly ties in to our brand promise to follow an operational path that leads to increasing real estate values within the community."
